C'mon now. Area = length x width (elementary school, right?).

Then get out your calculator.

### A circular frame that is 3 inches wide surrounds the mirror what is the combined area in square inches of the mirror and frame?

Assuming it is a circular mirror, let the radius of the mirror
be R inches.
Then the combined radius is R + 3 inches
→ Combined area is π × (R + 3)² square inches.
[If you know the radius of the mirror, substitute its value for
R in the above formula and you will get the area in square inches.
If the mirror is another shape, you'll have to reask your question
with more information.]

### What happens to parallel light rays hitting a convex mirror?

Due to the positive curvature of a convex mirror, when parallel
light rays hit the mirror, they are reflected outward (they
diverge). As such, convex mirrors are often used for security in
convenient stores and other places...because they allow for a wide
area to be reflected in the mirror, allowing you to see a wide area
when you look at the mirror.

### How much area is 230 square feet?

230 square feet can be any combination of length multiplied by
width measured in feet that results in an answer of 230 sqft.
examples would include:
1. a square area measuring 15.1658 feet in length times 15.1658
feet in width.
2. a rectangle area measuring 10 feet times 23 feet.
3. a triangle area measuring 46 feet at the base and 10' at the
height.
4. and a circle area measuring 8.5585 feet radius.

### Can perimeter be converted to surface area?

No. Perimeter does not uniquely define surface
area. Example: Perimeter = 36 If it's a square with
sides = 9, then area = 92 = 81 If it's a rectangle measuring 12 by
6, then area = 72 If it's a rectangle measuring 15 by 3, then area
= 45 If it's a rectangle measuring 16 by 2, then area = 32 etc.
etc. etc. Each of these figures has the same perimeter, but they
all have different areas.
