Millie and Tillie are still having difficulties in sharing living space. To keep peace, they have agreed to divide the house into specific areas for each of them. If the total floor area of the house is 1,800 sq. feet, and Millie owns the master bedroom, which is 15 feet by 18 feet, how much area does that leave for Tillie to live in?
Answer for sheet # 42
Area of the master bedroom = 15 x 18 = 270 sq. feet
Tillies' area = 1800 - 270 = 1530 sq. feet
