10-1 Areas of Parallelograms and Triangles

2

Area Formulas Area of a Rectangle: The area of a rectangle is the product of its base and height. A = bh Area of a Parallelogram: The area of a parallelogram is the product of a base and the corresponding height. Area of a Triangle: The area of a triangle is half the product of a base and the corresponding height. A = ½ bh

10-2 Areas of Trapezoids, Rhombuses, and Kites

7

More Area Formulas Area of a Trapezoid: The area of a trapezoid is half the product of the height and the sum of the bases. A = ½h(b1 + b2) Area of a Rhombus or a Kite: The area of a rhombus or a kite is half the product of the lengths of its diagonals. A = ½d1d2 *Is there another way to find the area of a rhombus?
