Good afternoon staff forum. A square is 9 cm side and its area corresponds to 45% of the area of a rectangle. Under these conditions, what is the area of the rectangle? 150 cm ² 160 cm ² 180 cm ² 200 cm ² n.d.a.

Area=lxw (9cm)^2=81cm^2 81cm^2/0.45=180cm^2 180cm^2 is the area of the rectangle

OK. The area of the square is S and the area of the triangle is T. The area of the square is S=9cm * 9cm=81cm^2. It also says .45T=S. So, solve for T. T=S/.45=81/.45=180cm^2.
