A hole the size of a photograph is cut from a red piece of paper to use in a picture frame. What is the area of the piece of red paper after the hole for the photograph has been cut

(1) Answers

calculate the area of the photograph and subtract it from the area of the red paper. so if photo is 3" x 5" area would be 3*5 = 15 sq. in.if paper was 8.5" x 11" the area would be 8.5*11 = 93.5 sq. in. then subtract 15 from 93.5: 93.5-15 = 78.5 sq. in.
