**Answer:**

180 cm^2

**Step-by-step explanation:**

**Remark**

If you put the slices that have been removed back into the figure, and figure out the resulting rectangle and subtract the slices, you get an answer that is easily calculated.

**Note**

The square on the upper right is 6 cm high. That makes the width of the rectangle 9 + 6 = 15. The length is already known as 15. So this square is 15 by 15 = 225

The lower right triangle is a little harder to handle. The total width is 15. The height of the triangle is 6 + 6. The first 6 comes from the square that was removed. The total with is 15. So the height of the lower right triangle is 15 - 12 = 3

Answer

The answer to the square on the upper left that was removed = 6*6 = 36

The answer to the triangle on the lower right is 1/2 * 6 * 3 = 9

The total of the removed figues is 36 + 9 = 45

The area of the figure with both figures removed is 225 - 45 = 180 cm^2

5/15, it can still be divided by 5

5/15 in simplest form is 1/5
