The adjoining figure (not drawn to scale) is made up of a square WXYZ and a rectangle ABCD. The area of the square is 64 cm2. The length of the rectangle is 12 cm and its breadth is 9 cm. What is the total area of the unshaded part?

A52 cm2
B142 cm2
C112 cm2
D98 cm2

couldn't understand this one!!!

## Ans 1:

it should be subtracted 2 times as the shaded area is coming in both the figures....we have taken the whole area of both the shapes

## Ans 2:

Class : Class 7
Yes I think we should subtract the shaded area only one time . Why they subtracting it two times

## Ans 4:

The Shaded Area must be subtracted 2 times because it is overlapping the same area of both of the shapes.

## Ans 5:

it is extremely obvious that the shaded area needs to be subtracted twice as the shaded area is occurring in both shapes!!!!!!!! even if u find the area of the unshaded area separately, u are going to get the same answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it is definitely C!!!!!!! (C) (C)
