Area of the picture including the outer frame = $$(10\sqrt{2})^2$$ = 100*2 = 200.

Area of the picture = 50% of entire area = 200/2 = 100.

A. 100
B. 40
C. 50
D. 25
E. 10

Given:

Area of square = side²
So, the total area = (10√2)² = (10√2)(10√2) = 200

GIVEN: The area of the picture enclosed by the frame is 50% of the entire area.
So, each region has area 100

Cheers,
Brent

The combined area of the picture and frame is (10√2)^2 = 200, so the area of the picture itself is 100.
