The given figure is made up of two rectangles.
Find its total area.
A 144 cm2
B 216 cm2
C 240 cm2
D 300 cm2
There is a difference between square cm and cm squared (cm2). Most of your questions refer to square cm, but referred to as cm2. Please correct the same.
Answer is b because the length of the bigger rectangle is 18 cm and breadth is 8 cm. The length of the smaller rectangle is 30 cm-18 cm=12 cm and breadth is 8 cm-2 cm=6 cm. The area of the bigger rectangle is 18 cm X 8 cm=144 sq. cm and the area area of the smaller rectangle is 12 cm X 6 cm=72 sq. cm. Area of the figure given is 144 sq. cm+72 sq. cm=216 sq. cm.
