THE PROBLEM IS

:joe needs to replace the carpet in his living room and hallways with laminate flooring. A floor plan is shown below. What is the total area of floor that needs to be recovered?
That is the question po 30m²

Step-by-step Explanation:

From the floor plan shown in the attached diagram, the hall way and the living room both takes the shape of a rectangle.

To find the total area of floor to be covered, we can use the formula of the area of a rectangle to find the area of the hall way + the area of the living room.

Area of rectangle = L*B

For the hall way, L = 3.2m, B = 1.5m

Area of hall way = 3.2*1.5 = 4.8m²

For the living room, L = 6m, B = 4.2m

Area of Living room = 6*4.2 = 25.2m²

Therefore, area of floor to be covered = 4.8m² + 25.2m² = 30m²
