. (Fig. 20.25). 
 
Solution: 
 
(i) The given shape has 16 complete squares. 
It is given that area of one square = 1 cm
2
 
So the area of the given shape = 16 × 1 = 16 cm

2
 
 
(iv) The given shape has 20 complete and 8 half squares. 
It is given that area of one square = 1 cm
2

2
 
 
(v) The given shape has 13 complete, 8 more than half and 7 less than half squares. 
It is given that area of one square = 1 cm
2

2
 
 
(vi) The given shape has 8 complete, 6 more than half and 4 less than half squares. 
It is given that area of one square = 1 cm
2

2
 
 
2. On a squared paper, draw (i) a rectangle, (ii) a triangle (iii) any irregular closed figure. Find the 
approximate area of each by counting the number of squares complete, more than half and exactly half.
