Write a ratio in simplified form of the area of the shaded figure to the area of the figure which encloses it.

I have a square with height 5w and width 5w. Enclosing it are a right triangle on each side, which have a width of 6 and have the square's height (5w) also applying to these triangles.

  • algebra - unclear -

    no diagrams, and I can't see how two triangles the same height as the rectangle can enclose it.
