Utah Units

The state of Utah has a rather geometrical shape, as shown in the image.

The shape is close to a rectangle, with a small rectangle cut out of the upper right corner.

  1. Use the scale to estimate the total area of Utah in square miles.
  2. Use the area of Utah as a unit of measure to estimate the area of the continental United States. That is, estimate the area of the continental United States in “Utahs.”
  3. Use your answers to problems 1 and 2 to estimate the area of the continental United States in square miles.
