(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The Area of A Quadrilateral Given A Square

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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?

2. Relevant equations

area = 1/2 base * height

3. 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?
