**Problem / Question**

**Strategy**

This seems to be a confounding question on decimals. What shall we do with the triangles? Is there a short cut?

Yes! What you can do is to

*imagine*putting the two triangles together to form a rectangle. And then the solution becomes easy! This is because the area is unchanged and hence the proportion of the shaded area is unchanged, is the same as before. We can make use of fractions and convert it to a decimal.**Solution**

H02. Use a
diagram / model

H04. Look for
pattern(s)

H09. Restate
the problem in another way

H10. Simplify
the problem

**Suitable Levels**

and decimals
