# In Exercises 19 to 22, find the area of the shaded region. A and B are midpoints.

To determine

To find:

The area of the shaded region.

Explanation

Finding the area of the figure is followed by identifying the figure and find area with the suitable geometry formulae.

Calculation:

Given,

This figure represents the right triangle inscribed in the larger right triangle A and B are midpoints.

Thus,

The area of the shaded region A=(A1) area of the larger right triangle(A2)area of the smaler right triangle (i.e.) A=A1A2

Area of the right triangle =12ab

Where, a and b the legs of a right triangle

Here, a1=6

a2=62 [since A and B are midpoints]

b1=8
