5x/2 Step 2. Then add the 10x. This is done by adding four rectangles with dimensions ‘x’ by ‘10/4’ to the four sides of the square. (10/4 simplifies to 5/2)
5x/2x 5x/2 Step 3 To complete the square, add four yellow squares to the corners.
5x/2 Each yellow square has dimensions of 5/2 Thus, the area of each yellow square is 25/4.
The blue square has an area of x 2. The four red rectangles have an area of 10x. [(5x/2) X 4] The four yellow squares have an area of 25. [(5/2) X 4] 5x/2 The equation tells us that x 2 +10x is equal to 39. So, we can replace the blue and red shapes with a purple shape that has an area of 39.
To get the area of the entire shape, we add the area of the four yellow squares which is 25 to the area of purple shape which is 39 and get an area of 64 which is represented by the orange square. This orange square has dimensions of 8.
To find x, we subtract 2(5/2) from 8 and we get 3.
