7-54.

Find the area of the shape below in at least two ways. Homework Help ✎

Label each remaining side using centimeters.

Our first method of finding the area is to divide the shape into smaller rectangles and label their areas.

Another method for finding the area is to subtract the area of the rectangle in the upper-right corner from the area of the purple rectangle. Show that this method gives the same answer as Method 1.
