**The Area of A Quadrilateral Given A Square**

## Homework Statement

In a square PQRS, point T is the midpoint of side QR. If the area of square PQRS is 3, what is the area of quadrilateral PQTS?

## Homework Equations

area = 1/2 base * height

## The Attempt at a Solution

Side QR = 1.737

Side RS = 1.737

TR = .8685

area = 1/2(1.737) * .8685 = .25

The area of the triangle = .25

3 - .25 = 2.75

The area of quadrilateral PQTS = 2.75

Is my answer right?
