These two problems are giving me a lot of trouble. If any one could give me some help in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.
1 In rectangle ABCD, point E is on side AB so that AE = 10 and EB = 5. What fraction of the area of the rectangle is inside triangle AEC?
2 M and N are the midpoints of consecutive sides of a square ABCD with vertex A in between M and N. What is the ratio of the area of triangle AMN to the area of the complete square.
Thanks again.
Hello, lyyy94!
1. In rectangle , point is on side so that: .
What fraction of the area of the rectangle is inside triangle ?The length of the rectangle is 15.Code:: 10 E 5 : A o - - - - - - - o - - - o B | *:::::::::::::* | | *:::::::::::* | | *:::::::::* | x | *:::::::* | x | *:::::* | | *:::* | | *:*| D o - - - - - - - - - - - o C 15
The width of the rectangle is
The area of
The area of rectangle
The fraction (ratio) is: .
Make a sketch and the answer is obvious . . .2. and are midpoints of sides and of square
What is the ratio of the area of to the area of the square?
Code:N A o - - - o - - - o B |:::::* | * | |:::* | * | |:* | * | M o - - - + - - - * | * | * | | * | * | | * | * | D o - - - * - - - o C
