A) $A = 142 \frac{1}{4} {u}^{2}$

B) $P = 49.5 u$

#### Explanation:

A) area of carpet is $b h + b h$ where we are adding the two smaller areas.

$A = \left(11 u \times 8 \frac{1}{2} u\right) + \left(6 \frac{1}{2} u \times 7 \frac{1}{2} u\right)$

$A = 93 \frac{1}{2} {u}^{2} + 48 \frac{3}{4} {u}^{2} = 142 \frac{1}{4} {u}^{2}$

B) perimeter of the carpet is the sum of all the lengths, since none are equal.

$P = 11 u + 8 \frac{1}{2} u + 6 \frac{1}{2} u + 7 \frac{1}{2} u + \left(8 \frac{1}{2} u + 7 \frac{1}{2} u\right)$

$P = 49.5 u$
