• # question_answer What is the area of the shaded figure if the area of a grid square is 2 cm2? A)  36 $\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$        B)    32 $\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$        C)  18 $\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$        D)  30 $\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

From the given figure, the number of squares shaded = No. of full squares + $\frac{\text{no}\text{.of squares}}{2}+$no. of half squares $=10+\frac{2\times 4}{2}+2\times \frac{1}{2}=15$ Area of each grid square $=\text{ 2 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$ $\therefore$ The area of shaded figure $=\text{15 }\times \text{ 2 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ }=\text{3}0\text{ c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$
