Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ545

The figure below is made up of a right-angle triangle and a rhombus overlapping each other. 2/9 of the triangle and ½ of the rhombus are not overlapped.

The base and height of the triangle are 18cm and 28 cm respectively.

What is the area of the rhombus?



2/9 of triangle not overlapped ==> 7/9 of the triangle is overlapped

½ of the rhombus overlapped ==> ½ of the rhombus is overlapped

The overlapped area (yellow region) are equal size(area),

1 part of the rhombus equal to 7 parts of the triangle

½ = 7/14 of rhombus ==> 7/9 of the triangle

The area of the triangle = ½ × 18 × 28 = 252 cm2


9 units = 252

1 unit = 28 cm2

The area of the rhombus = 14 × 28 = 392 cm2
