# Find the area enclosed by the figure?

Dec 2, 2017

$2544 c {m}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

So you want to start by finding the area of the big square.

We know the width to the big square is 60cm. The length to the big square is $19 + 24 + 13 = 56$

Big square $A r e a = L \cdot W = 56 \cdot 60 = 3360$

Now let’s find the little square inside the bigger square. We see from the picture that the width is 34 and the length is 24cm. Using the same formula, we can find the area of the little square.

Little square $A r e a = L \cdot W = 24 \cdot 34 = 816$

The area enclosed is the area of the big square minus the area of the little square.

$3360 - 816 = 2544$

So the area enclosed is $2544 c {m}^{2}$
