Worksheet Overview

You need to know the formula for finding the area of a rectangle:


Area of a rectangle = length × breadth

                               OR base × height




Find the shaded area of the following shape.



Area of large square = 13 × 13 = 169 units2

Area of small square = 5 × 5 = 25 units2

Shaded area = 169 − 25 = 144 units2


Did that make sense?
