Finding the area of a triangle? Know the length of the base and the height? Then just take those values and plug them into the formula for the area of a triangle and solve! This tutorial shows you how.
Looking for the area of a parallelogram? Got the length of the base and the height? Then plug those values into the formula for the area of a parallelogram and solve. This tutorial takes you through the process!
Want to find the area of a trapezoid? If you have the length of each base and the height, you can use them to find the area. In this tutorial, you'll see how to identify those values and plug them into the formula for the area of a trapezoid. Then see how to simplify to get your answer!
Composite figures are just a combination of simpler figures in disguise! In this tutorial, you'll see how to break down a composite figure into simpler figures. Then, see how to find the area of each of those individual figures to find the area of the entire composite figure. Watch the whole process in this tutorial!
Did you know that the formula for the area of a triangle can be found by using the formula for the area of a parallelogram? In this tutorial, you'll see how it's done! Take a look!
Parallelograms and rectangles are pretty similar. In fact, you can turn a parallelogram into a rectangle to find the formula for the area of a parallelogram! Check out this tutorial to see how it's done!
Trying to figure out the formula for the area of a trapezoid? You could start by creating a parallelogram out of two trapezoids. Then, use the formula for the area of a parallelogram to figure out the formula for the area of one trapezoid. This tutorial shows you how!
