1. How do you get the area of a square
b X h = area

Example:

If a square is 4 inches heigh (h) and 4 inches wide (b) the formulate would be

4 X 4 = 20 sq. in.

REMEMBER: Area is always expressed in sq. measurments
2. How do you get the area of a rectangle?
b X h = area

• Example:If a square is 4 inches heigh (h) and 5 inches wide (b) the formulate would be
• 4 X 5 = 20 sq. in.

REMEMBER: Area is always expressed in sq. measurments
3. How do you get the area of a triangle?
• A = b x h
• 2

If the height of a triangle is 4' and the base is 3' the formula would be

• A = 4 x 3
• 2

• A = 12
• 2

A = 6

Area is always expressed in sq. measurments
4. How do you get the area of a trapezoid?
• A = b1 + b2 x h
• 2

If the trapazoid has a bottom base of 5" and a top base of 3" and a height of 3 inches

• A = 5 + 3 x 3
• 2

• A = 8 x 3
• 2

A = 4 x 3

A = 12 sq. in.
