Q:
# The following octagon is formed by removing four congruent right triangles from a rectangle. What is the total area of the octagon

Accepted Solution

A:

To find the total area of the octagon you can find the area of the rectangle that is created by the entire figure and subtract the areas of the four congruent right triangles.

(10 cm x 6 cm) - [4(1/2 x 2 x 2)]

60 cm² -8 cm² = 52 cm²

The total area of the octagon is 52 cm².

(10 cm x 6 cm) - [4(1/2 x 2 x 2)]

60 cm² -8 cm² = 52 cm²

The total area of the octagon is 52 cm².
