__Answers:__
1. DOK Level 1; Content Topic: Q.4.a

The area of the rectangle is

A = bh

A = (4.5m)(12 m)

A = 54m2

2. DOK Level 1; Content Topic: Q.4.a

The area of the square is

A = s2

A = 36 in2, and then s = 6 in

3. DOK Level 2; Content Topic: Q.4.a

The area of the mural is

A = bh

A = (15 ft) (32 ft)

A = 480 ft2

Each quart covers 100 ft2, so it will take 5 quarts of coating to complete the job.

4. DOK Level 2; Content Topic: Q.4.a

The area of a rectangle is

A = bh.

If the base and height are doubled, the area becomes

A = (2b)(2h)

A = 4bh.

This is 4 times the original area.

5. DOK Level 2; Content Topic: Q.4.a

36
The area of the floor is 216 square feet, and the area of each tile is 6 square feet. Since each dimension of a tile is a factor of the corresponding dimension of the floor and 216 divided by 6 is equal to 36, it will take 36 tiles to cover the floor.

6. DOK Level 2; Content Topic: Q.4.a

The area of the parallelogram is

A = bh

A = (8 cm)(5 cm)

A = 40 cm2

7. DOK Level 2; Content Topic: Q.4.a

The area of the triangle is

A = ½ bh

A = ½ (15 m)(6 m)

A = 45 m2

8. 3/2 or 1.5 (DOK Level 2; Content Topic: Q.4.a)

Divide the figure into a square and a right triangle. The area of the square is A = x2and the area of the triangle is

A = ½ bh

A = ½ (x)(x)

A = ½ x2

The total area is A = 3/2 x2.
