Question

Find the area of the shaded part

  1. 48 square units    
  2. 32 square units    
  3. 18 square units    
  4. 14 square units    

Hint:

 Irregular shapes are those shapes that do not have equal sides or equal angles. In order to find the area of an irregular shape, it can be decomposed or divided into multiple familiar shapes and then the area of those can be added to get the total area. 

The correct answer is: 48 square units


     Irregular shapes are those shapes that do not have equal sides or equal angles. In order to find the area of an irregular shape, it can be decomposed or divided into multiple familiar shapes and then the area of those can be added to get the total area. 

    The above given figure is an example of irregular shapes.
    Thus, we divide the above shape into a rectangle of sides 9unit cross times2unit, rectangle of side 4unit  cross times 6unit and another rectangle of side 3unit cross times2unit.
    Thus, total area = (9 cross times2) + (4 cross times 6) + (3cross times2)='18 + 24 + 6 =  48square units
