ABGF is a square with half the perimeter of square ACDE. GD = 4 in. Find the area of the shaded region. The shaded area is FGBCDE.

I kinda know what needs to happen, but I'm lost and confused on the steps to get there:/ Step by step would be most helpful:) Thank you

1. No idea where CDE are in relation to BGF. All you have said is that the two squares share corner A.

However, you do know that the smaller square has sides 1/2 as long as the larger one, so its area is 1/4 as big.

I suspect you can use that to determine the shaded area.

Also, a square's diagonal is √2 as long as its sides.
