# From a rectangle with sides of 11 cm and 8 cm, 2 squares with sides of 5 cm were cut out.

**From a rectangle with sides of 11 cm and 8 cm, 2 squares with sides of 5 cm were cut out. find the area of the rest of the figure.**

1. To complete this task, it is necessary to subtract the area of two squares from the area of the rectangle, as a result we get the remaining area. Then we find the area of the original rectangle:

11 cm * 8 cm = 88 cm2.

2. Now let’s calculate the area of one square with a side of 5 cm:

5 * 5 = 25 cm2.

3. Now let’s determine the area of two identical squares if the area of one is 25 cm2:

25 * 2 = 50 cm2.

4. Finally, subtract the area of two squares from the area of the original rectangle to obtain the area of the remaining piece of the figure:

88 – 50 = 38 cm2.

Answer: The area of the remaining part of the rectangle is 38 cm2.
