A garden will be made up of a parallelogram, a rectangle and a triangle. The garden must have
an area of 500m2. Draw two possible gardens. Determine the dimensions of each part of the
garden, and justify your choice of these dimensions.

a rectangle 10x10
a right triangle with legs 20 and 20
a parallelogram with base 20 and height 10
area: 100+200+200
I'm sure you can come up with other scenarios.

Rectangle
Measurement:
Length = 20m
Width = 20m
Area = 200m2
An isosceles triangle
Measurement:
Base = 25m
Height = 16m
Area = 200m2
Parallelogram
Measurement:
Base: 25m
Height: 4m
Area = 100m2
Total Area = 200m2 + 200m2 + 100m2 = 500m2.

Oh, so all we need to do is make combinations, so that all the area adds up to 500m2. Thank you Steve and Aryan!

Yes, thank you!

Grade 8 Math  Aryan, Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 7:32am
Yes, no problem at all. Your very welcome, and thank you!
