Independence Day

June 29, 2015

To celebrate Independence Day, students attending a summer camp painted the American flag mural, show here, with the dimensions in centimeters.  If the area of each of the stars is 22.2 cm2, how many square centimeters of the flag is painted blue?

 

Assuming each of the stripes has the same thickness, what is the positive difference, in square meters, between the area of the flag covered in white stars and the area of the flag covered in white stripes? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest tenth.

 

Again, assuming each of the stripes has the same thickness, what percent of the flag mural is not painted white?
