1 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #1 Columbus State Community College Chapter 3 Section 2 Problem Solving: Area

2 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #2 Problem Solving: Area 1.Use the formula for area of a rectangle to find the area, the length, or the width. 2.Use the formula for area of a square to find the area or the length of one side. 3.Use the formula for area of a parallelogram to find the area, the base, or the height.

3 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #3 Difference between Perimeter and Area Perimeter is the distance around the outside edges of a flat shape. Area is the amount of surface inside a flat shape.

4 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #4 It will take 21 square inch pieces that measure one inch on each side to cover a rectangle that measures 7 inches long and 3 inches wide. Each square piece measures one inch along each side. 1" 7" 3" Each row contains 7 square pieces. Investigating Area

5 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #5 Area of a Rectangle Finding the Area of a Rectangle Area of a rectangle = length width A = l w Remember to use square units when measuring area.

6 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #6 Finding the Area of a Rectangle Find the area of each rectangle. (a) A = l w 28 cm 7 cm A = 28 cm 7 cm A = 196 cm 2 The area of the rectangle is 196 cm 2. EXAMPLE 1 Finding the Area of a Rectangle

7 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #7 Finding the Area of a Rectangle Find the area of each rectangle. (b) A rectangle measuring 15 inches by 6 inches. A = l w A = 15 in. 6 in. A = 90 in. 2 The area of the rectangle is 90 in. 2. EXAMPLE 1 Finding the Area of a Rectangle 15 in. 6 in.

8 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #8 Finding the Length or Width of a Rectangle If the area of a rectangular wall is 112 ft 2 and the length is 14 ft, find the width. The value of is A is 112 ft 2 and the value of l is 14 ft. ? 14 ft A = l w 112 ft 2 = 14 ft w 14 ft 8 ft = w EXAMPLE 2 Finding the Length or Width of a Rectangle

9 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #9 Finding the Length or Width of a Rectangle If the area of a rectangular wall is 112 ft 2, and the length is 14 ft, find the width. Check To check the solution, put the width measurement on your sketch. Then use the formula. 8 ft 14 ft A = l w A = 14 ft 8 ft A = 112 ft 2 EXAMPLE 2 Finding the Length or Width of a Rectangle An area of 112 ft 2 matches the information in the original problem. So 8 ft is the correct width of the wall.

10 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #10 Area of a Square Finding the Area of a Square Area of a square = side side A = s s Remember to use square units when measuring area. A = s 2

11 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #11 Find the area of a square table that is 4 ft on each side. Use the formula for area, A = s 2. A = s 2 A = s s A = 4 ft 4 ft A = 16 ft 2 Remember that s 2 means s s. Replace s with 4 ft. Multiply 4 4 to get 16. Multiply ft ft to get ft 2. The area of the table is 16 ft 2. EXAMPLE 3 Finding the Area of a Square Finding the Area of a Square

12 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #12 Find the area of a square table that is 4 ft on each side. EXAMPLE 3 Finding the Area of a Square Finding the Area of a Square Check Check the solution by drawing a square and labeling each side as 4 ft. You can multiply length ( 4 ft ) times width ( 4 ft ), as for a rectangle. So the area is 4 ft 4 ft, or 16 ft 2. This result matches the solution we got by using the formula A = s 2. 4 ft

13 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #13 Finding the Area of a Square Be careful! s 2 means s s. It does not mean 2 s. In this example s is 4 ft, so ( 4 ft ) 2 is 4 ft 4 ft = 16 ft 2. It is not 2 4 ft = 8 ft. CAUTION

14 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #14 To get s by itself, we have to “undo” squaring of s. This is called finding the square root. If the area of a square floor is 36 m 2, what is the length of one side of the floor? A = s 2 36 m 2 = s 2 36 m 2 = s s 6 m = s Replace A with 36 m 2. For now, solve by inspection. Ask, what number times itself gives 36? 6 6 is 36, so 6 m 6 m = 36 m 2. The value of s is 6 m, so the length of one side of the floor is 6 m. EXAMPLE 4 Finding the Length of One Side of a Square Finding the Area of a Square

15 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #15 base height Watch as we transform this parallelogram into a rectangle. Area of a rectangle = length width Area of a parallelogram = base height Equal areas Area of a Parallelogram

16 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #16 Finding the Area of a Parallelogram Area of a parallelogram = base height A = b h Remember to use square units when measuring area. Finding the Area of a Parallelogram

17 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #17 22 ft Find the area of the parallelogram. A = b h A = 22 ft 9 ft A = 198 ft 2 Notice that the 14 ft sides are not used in finding the area. But you would use them when finding the perimeter of the parallelogram. 9 ft 14 ft Use the formula for area of a parallelogram, A = bh. EXAMPLE 5 Finding the Area of a Parallelogram Finding the Area of a Parallelogram

18 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #18 32 in. The area of a parallelogram is 256 in. 2 and the base is 32 in. Find the height. ? The value of is A is 256 in. 2 and the value of b is 32 in. A = b h 256 in. 2 = 32 in. h 32 in. 8 in. = h EXAMPLE 6 Finding the Base or Height of a Parallelogram Finding the Base or Height of a Parallelogram

19 Ch 3 Sec 2: Slide #19 The height of the parallelogram is 8 in. Check To check the solution, put the height measurement on the sketch. Then use the formula. A = b h A = 32 in. 8 in. A = 256 in. 2 An area of 256 in. 2 matches the information in the original problem. So 8 in. is the correct height of the parallelogram. 32 in. The area of a parallelogram is 256 in. 2 and the base is 32 in. Find the height. ? EXAMPLE 6 Finding the Base or Height of a Parallelogram 8 in. Finding the Base or Height of a Parallelogram
