**Area word problems
**

A. You will accounter these area word problems often in math. Many of them will require familiarity with basic math, algebra skills, or a combination of both to solve the problems As I solve these area word problems, I will make an attempt to give you some problems solving skills Word problem #1:

The area of a square is 4 inches. What is the length of a side? Important concept: Square. It means 4 equal sides. Area = s × s= 4 × 4 = 16 inches

2

Word problem #2: A small square is located inside a bigger square. The length of one side of the small square is 3 inches and the length of one side of the big square is 7 inches What is the area of the region located outside the small square, but inside the big square? Important concept: Draw a picture and see the problem with your eyes. This is done below:

The area that you are looking for is everything is red. So you need to remove the area of the small square from the area of the big square Area of big square = s × s = 7 × 7 = 49 inches

2 2

**Area of small square = s × s = 3 × 3 = 9 inches Area of the region in red = 49 - 9 = 40 inches

If each tile has a length of 24 inches and a width of 36 inches. width is 4 cm less than its length.let L = length let W = width let A = area 3. 3. what are dimensions of rectangle. what are the dimensions of the rectangle? RSTUV 1. Translate into an equation. A = L * W W = L . If the width of the rectangle is 4 centimeters less than its length. 5. Verify the result 1. then the equation for the area of a rectangle becomes: A = L * (L-4) .4 cm Since W = L-4.area of a rectangle is 96 square cm.Jacquelinepdaguiao Tuguegarao East Central School Word problem #3: A classroom has a length of 20 feet and a width of 30 feet. 2. 2. Use the rules to solve. 4. Select the unknown. Read the problem. The headmaster decided that tiles will look good in that class. how many tiles are needed to fill the classroom? B. Question 480823: Solving Area and Perimeter Problems: Need to use the RSTUV Method to solve The area of a rectangle is 96 square centimeters.

4L . the dimensions are: L = 12 cm W = 8 cm .Jacquelinepdaguiao Tuguegarao East Central School 4.96 = 0 this is a quadratic equation.4L subtract 96 from both sides of the equation to get: 0 = L^2 . the dimensions of the rectangle are: L = 12 W = 8 the area of the rectangle is 36 square cm. back to original equation of: A = L * W which becomes: 96 = 12 * W divide both sides of this equation by 12 to get: 96/12 = W which becomes: W = 8 5.4L . A = 96 so equation of: A = L * (L-4) becomes: 96 = L * (L-4) perform indicated operations to get: 96 = L^2 .96 commute to get: L^2 . A = L * W becomes A = 12 * 8 which becomes A = 96 this is the same area we started with so the dimensions of the rectangle look good. factor it to get: (L .12) * (L + 8) = 0 solve for L to get: L = 12 or L = -8 L can't be negative so L = 12.
