The figure below shows the dimensions of a square picture frame that was constructed using four pieces of frame as shown. If w is the width of each piece of the frame, what is the area of each piece?

(1) w = 3 inches
(2) PQ = sq root (18) inches

(1) suff

Area of outer square = 3 ft ^2
Area of inner square = (36inch - 6inch) ^ 2
Area of each piece = difference between the area of the squares/4

(2) suff

Diagonal of outer square = 3 * sqrt (2)
Diagonal of innter square = 3 * sqrt (2) - 2 * PQ
side of inner square can be found
and area can be determined

D

From (i) PQ represents the diagonal of a small square between the 2 edges of the large and the small square.

PQ should be sqrt(2)*3

ii) From the size of PQ also we can find out the relative size of the smaller square

Assuming each piece of the frame has the same dimensions as the others, we can know the area of each piece knowing either its width or the length of the diagonal sides. Therefore, D.
