1
Area of Quadrilaterals and Triangles

2
What is a quadrilateral? Any polygon with four sides and four vertices (or corners) All sides must be straight

3
Area of square, rectangle, and parallelogram Area is a measure of the amount of space contained inside a closed figure The area of a square, rectangle, or parallelogram is the product of its base and height: ▫Area = base height

4
Find the area: A = b h A = 11 5 A = 55 cm 2 A = b h A = 6 4 A = 24 in 2 Which measurement is the base? 11cm Which measurement is the height? 5cm

5
The TRAPEZOID The trapezoid is a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides that are opposites ▫The parallel sides are the “bases” ▫The non-parallel sides are the “legs” ▫The height is the distance between the bases

6
Area of a Trapezoid Since the bases are not the same length, we have to take the average of them to find the area ▫Average of bases = ½ (b 1 + b 2 ) Next, multiply the average of the bases by the height to get the area Area of Trapezoid = ½ h(b 1 + b 2 ) Area of Trapezoid = ½ h(b 1 + b 2 )

7
Find the area: Find the average of the bases ▫½ (b 1 + b 2 ) ▫½ (9 + 5) ▫ = 7 Multiply by the height ▫6 7 = 42 in 2

8
Triangles A triangle is half of a rectangle or half of a parallelogram If we know the area of a rectangle or parallelogram is base height, what could the are of a triangle be? Remember, a triangle is half Area = ½ b h

9
Find the area Area = ½ b h Area = ½ (10 8) Area = ½ 80 Area = 40 mm 2
