Lanier Middle School “An International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme School” 7th – LESSON 9.4 Composite Figures Daily Objective: How do you find the area of composite figures? Describe one way you can find the area of the garden shown on the right. 1 Use dotted lines to show two different ways the garden cold be divided up into simple geometric figures. Find the areas of each of the following figures. 2 A composite figure is made up of simple geometric shapes. To find the area of a composite figure or other irregular-shaped figure, divide it into simple, nonoverlapping figures. Find the area of each simpler figure, and then add the areas together to find the total area of the composite figure. Use the chart below to review some common area formulas. 3 5 A banquet room is being carpeted. A floor plan of the room is shown at the below. Each unit represents 1 yard. The carpet costs $23.50 per square yard. How much will it cost to carpet the room? 4 Find the area of the figure below Lanier Middle School “An International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme School” 6 A window is being replaced with tinted glass. The plan below shows the design of the window. Each unit length represents 1 foot. The glass costs $28 per square foot. How much will it cost to replace the glass? Use 3.14 for pi. 8 Calculate the area of the composite figure shown below. 10 A banner is made of a square and a semicircle. The square has side lengths of 26 inches. One side of the square is also the diameter of the semicircle. What is the total area of the banner? Use 3.14 for pi. 11 Erin wants to carpet the floor of her closer. A floor plan of the closet is shown below. 7 A tile installer plots an irregular shape on grid paper. Each square on the grid represents 1 square centimeter. What is the area of the irregular shape? 9 Sal is tilling his entryway. The floor plan is drawn on a unit grid. Each unit length represents 1 foot. Tile costs $2.25 per square foot. How much will Sal pay to file his entryway? 12 Hexagon ABCDEF has vertices A(-2,4), B(0,4), C(2,1), D(5,1), E(5,-2), and F(-2,-2). Sketch the figure on a coordinate plante. What is the area of the hexagon? 13 A field is shaped like the figure shown below. What is the area of the field? Use 3.14 for pi. How much carpet does Erin need? The carpet Erin has chosen costs $2.50 per square foot. How much will it cost to carpet the floor? 14 A bookmark is shaped like a rectangle with a semicircle attached at both ends. The rectangle is 12 cm long and 4 cm wide. The diameter of each semicircle is the width of the rectangle. What is the area of the bookmark? Use 3.14 for pi. 16 A composite figure is formed by combining a square and a triangle. Its total area is 32.5 square feet. The area of the triangle is 7.5 square feet. What is the length of each side of the square? Make a diagram to help you. 15 Alex is making 12 pennants for the school fair. The pattern he is using to make the pennants is shown in the figure. The fabric for the pennants costs $1.25 per square foot. How much will it cost Alex to make 12 pennants?

She estimates that she will get about 15 carrots from each square unit. She plans to use the entire garden for carrots. About how many carrots can she expect to grow? 18 The figure shown is made up of a triangle and a square. The perimeter of the figure is 56 inches. What is the area of the figure? Explain 19 The pattern for a scarf is shown at the right. What is the area of the scarf? Use 3.14 for pi. 20 The design for the palladium window shown includes a semicircular shape at the top. The bottom is formed by squares of equal size. A shade for the window will extend 4 inches beyond the perimeter of the window, shown by the dashed line around the window. Each square in the window has an area of 100 square inches. What is the area of the window? Use 3.14 for pi. What is the area of the shade? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
