Unit 4, Lesson 12# Solve word problems involving area

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students solve area word problems such as "The area of Theo's banner is 32 square feet. If the length of his banner measures 4 feet, how wide is his banner?" Some problems invite them to decompose rectangles with larger dimensions into two smaller rectangles. (For example, "Amir is getting carpet in his bedroom, which measures 7 feet by 15 feet. How many square feet of carpet will Amir need?")
