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
Please pa help
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
