  1. Not sure what you mean by

    "the triangle's dimensions are 19 cm"

    Is that an equilateral triangle?

    If so, then you have a rectangle and a triangle, so the area is
    17*22 + 19^2/4 √3 = 374 + 156.3 = 530.3

    If I misread your intent, just fix it up. I'm sure you know how to find the area of a rectangle and a triangle.

  15. First off, we can see that the shape has been divided into a rectangle and a triangle. We will be calculating the area of the triangle first.

    In the triangle, we see the base is 19 cm, and the height is 12 cm 22-10=12. So that would be 19x12÷2= 114.

    The rectangle is much simpler. All we need to do is 17x22, which equals 374.

    Now we add 374+114= 488. So our answer is 488cm squared

    also im probably wrong, im really stup3d, so im really sorry if im wrong, and remember kids, don't copy exactly
