Rosyth Sch 2007 PSLE Math Prelim Q42

Find the area of the figure.

Answer: 196 square cm

This can be worked in a simpler way. The area of the figure is just the area of a square of sides 14 cm. The bottom figures can be split into four and two of them can be moved up to form a square. so area is 14X14 = 196 sq cm.
