Ex 10.3, 11 (a) Split the following shapes into rectangles and find their areas. (The measures are given in centimeters) Our rectangles are: APEF, CDPB Rectangle APEF, Length = l = 2 cm Breadth = b = 12 cm Rectangle CDPB, Length = l = 8 cm Breadth = b = 2 cm Area = l × b = 2 × 12 = 24 sq. cm = 24 〖𝑐𝑚〗^2 Area = l × b = 8 × 2 = 16 sq. cm = 16 〖𝑐𝑚〗^2 Area of given shape = 24 + 16 = 40 sq. cm = 40 cm2
