maybe advanced and intermediate have diffrent meaning for "easy"

i'm in advanced, and thought it was pretty easy... well, i could've done better but I aint complaining since i studied almost nothing and was really sick the day of the exam.

750 was definately the area of the trapezium.

There were two similar triangles, in the ratio 1:4. This means that their areas were in the ratio 1:16 (1:4^2). The trapezium was the larger triangle minus the smaller triangle, and the smaller triangle was 50 (given). So the trapezium was 16x50 (800) - 50 = 750

Hah. Look at my fucked up way of doing it was.
Diagram attatched.

Seeing as we know that the bottom is 3 times longer than the top traingle...
I drew a similar isoceles triangle as shown, used the area ratio thing and got 450cm^2 for that similar traingle. Now seeing as the area of that triangle is
(x^2) / 2 (base=height as its an isocles)
Will I worked it out and I got x=30. Therefore seeing as the 3 became a 30 (*10), the one became a 10. Therefore the area of the rectangle is 300.

Area of trapzeium = area of rectangle + area of triangle.
Area = 450+300 = 750

I know, way too long and useless. It probably wouldnt have worked as well if the smaller triangle wasnt similar to the triangle it was within, so yeah. Im an idiot, haha.
