Angela had a rectangular piece of paper and then cut a rectangle out of a corner as shown at right. Find the area and perimeter of the resulting shape.  

 An enclosed figure starting at the upper left corner: right 6, down 7 , right 15, down 9 centimeter, left 21, up 16 to enclose the figure.

Perimeter is the distance around the exterior of a figure.

Area is the number of 'squares' needed to cover the interior of a figure.

Divide this shape into smaller rectangles to find the area.
