# Area of shaded portion in Fig. 9.15 is

a. 25 cm²

b. 15 cm²

c. 14 cm²

d. 10 cm²

**Solution:**

From the figure

Length of rectangle = 5 cm

Breadth of rectangle = 3 + 1 = 4 cm

We know that

Area of shaded portion = 1/2 × __Area of rectangle__

= 1/2 × (l × b)

Substituting the values

= 1/2 × (5 × 4)

= 1/2 × 20

So we get

= 10 cm²

Therefore, the area of the shaded portion is 10 cm².
