**Answer This Question**

How to do?

From the figure you can see 3 shaded triangles.

Note that the 3 shaded triangles have the same height, 10cm. (Because they all touch the top part of the square, and the square is 10cm by 10cm)

Area of the 3 shaded triangles

= 1/2 x base of 1st triangle x 10cm +

1/2 x base of 2nd triangle x 10cm +

1/2 x base of 3rd triangle x 10cm

= 1/2 x 10cm x (bases of 1st triangle + 2nd + 3rd triangle)

Notice that the bases occupy the length of all three squares. So this means the total length of the bases is 3 x 10cm = 30cm

So, area of the 3 triangles = 1/2 x 10cm x 30cm = 150cm²
