Use the LARGE WHITE POINTS to create different composite figures. Use the PEN and TEXT tools (in the toolbar) to find your areas.

Can you find another setup that works (different from the one you have above)? Try to do so!

Create a 3rd setup different from the other two above.

Curious: Was it possible to use the digit 0 as one of the original dimensions of the house? Explain why or why not. If you'd like, you can sketch in the whiteboard provided below.
