Chapter 8 - Geometry - 8.4 Parallelograms and Trapezoids - 8.4 Exercises - Page 559: 19


The total area of the quilt is 437.5 in$^{2}$.

Work Step by Step

First we must find the area of a single parallelogram. Area of a Parallelogram: Area = $b$$h$ Area = $A$ Therefore: $A$ = (5 in)(3.5 in) $A$ = 17.5 in$^{2}$ To find the area of all the parallelograms we must multiply by the number of parallelograms. Therefore: $A$$_{Total}$ = (25)(17.5 in$^{2}$) $A$$_{Total}$ = 437.5 in$^{2}$
