Pl. find the attached map. 1. Can u pl. find out the total square are of WLMZ 2. Can u pl .find out the total square are of WXYZ  { A } 3. Can u pl .find out the total square are of XLMY  { B } Pl .help me to find out the above. Pl. suggest me the formula's. When I tried using Pythagoras theorem, I got XY as 38. Is it correct ? But I am not getting Y perpendicular to WZ correctly. pl,. help me. Thanks, Balachandar 

Hi Balachandar, There's not enough information  we need to know if the lines WZ, XY, and ML are perpendicular to the line WL. If that is the case, Y would not be on the line ZM because parallel lines (WZ, XY, ML) would have to chop off equal segments ZY and YM. (Were the figure WZML a trapezoid then ZY = YM (which we could determine for you), and XY would have length (32 + 74)/2 = 53. Chris
