\(\displaystyle{\underset{{{1}+{2}}}{{{A}}}}={\underset{{{1}}}{{{A}}}}+{\underset{{{2}}}{{{A}}}}\)
A=ab
Where a and b are the sides of the rectangle:
Substitute A=ab:
\(\displaystyle{\underset{{{1}+{2}}}{{{A}}}}={\underset{{{1}}}{{{a}}}}\times{\underset{{{1}}}{{{b}}}}+{\underset{{{2}}}{{{a}}}}\times{\underset{{{2}}}{{{b}}}}\)
Substitute the given:
\(\displaystyle{\underset{{{1}+{2}}}{{{A}}}}={15}\times{7}+{27}\times{3}\)
\(\displaystyle{\underset{{{1}+{2}}}{{{A}}}}={105}+{81}\)
\(\displaystyle{\underset{{{1}+{2}}}{{{A}}}}={186}{m}^{{2}}\)
