A man owns a rectangular piece of land. The land is divided into four rectangular pieces, known as Region A, Region B, Region C, and Region D. One day his daughter, Nancy, asked him, what is the area of our land? The father replied: I will only tell you that the area of Region B is 200 ft^2 larger than the area of Region A; the area of Region C is 400 ft^2 larger than the area of Region B; and the area of Region D is 800 ft^2 larger than area of Region C. What answer to her question will Nancy derive from her father’s statement?

1. A = X Ft^2
B = (X+200) Ft^2
C = (X+200) +400 Ft^2
D = (X+200)+400 + 800

AREA = 4x + 600 + 800 + 800 =
4x + 2200 = 4A + 2200

Answer: She must measure Region A,
multiply the results by 4, and add 2200
Ft^2.
