3M = 5G

1M = 5/3 G

1M : 1G = 5 : 3 = 10 : 6

3M = 10P

1M = 10/3 P

1M : 1P = 10 : 3

1M : 1G : 1P = 10 : 6 : 3

Area of large square – Area of yellow square = 6^2 – 3^2 = 36 – 9 = 27

Yellow square => 3 x 3

Orange square => 4 x 4

White square => 5 x 5

Blue square => 6 x 6

Length of A = Width of A = 6 - 4 = 2

Area of A = 2 X 2 = 4

Area of A = Area of B [Symmetry]

Area of A + Area of B = 4cm2 x 2 = 8cm2
