In the square ABCD point P is in the middle of the DC side and point Q in the middle pages AD. If the area of quadrilateral BQPC is 49 cm2, what is the area of ABCD?

Correct result:

S =  78.4 cm2


S=a2  a212a2a212aa2=49 a218a212a2=49 58a2=49 a2=4985=78.4 cm2 S=a2=78.4 cm2S = a^2 \ \\ \ \\ a^2 - \dfrac{1}{2}\dfrac{a}{2}\dfrac{a}{2}-\dfrac{1}{2}a\dfrac{a}{2} = 49 \ \\ a^2 - \dfrac{1}{8}a^2 - \dfrac{1}{2}a^2 = 49 \ \\ \dfrac{5}{8}a^2 = 49 \ \\ a^2 = 49 \dfrac{8}{5} = 78.4 \ \text{cm}^2 \ \\ S = a^2 = 78.4 \ \text{cm}^2
