What is Area? amount of space inside a flat shape measured in square units 1 cm Area of a Parallelogram (includes squares/rectangles) Calculator permitted for area problems, but show all steps. Steps: F - Formula S - Substitution A - Answer

How many cm2 (square cm)make up the inside of this rectangle? ____________________ What is the area of this rectangle? ____________________ What is the formula (shortcut) for finding the area of a rectangle? A = height base

Find the area of each rectangle. Show required steps. a.) Formula (A=b h) b.) Substitution (plug in the numbers) c.) Answer with correct unit 1.) 6 cm 1.5 cm 2.) 13 m

tricky in 3.) 4.)

A parallelogram is just like a rectangle. therefore the formula is the same. 6 cm 4 cm A = = 6 cm 4 cm height base

Find the area of each parallelogram. Show required steps. a.) Formula (A=b h) b.) Substitution (plug in the numbers) c.) Answer with correct unit 5.) 8 m 4 m 5 m 6.) 5.1 m 4.7 m 4 m 7.) 9 cm 4.5 cm 5.2 cm

8.) The area of a rectangle is 40 ft2. If the base of the figure is 4 ft, what is its height? 4 ft Area = 40 ft2 ?

Demonstrate Understanding: Find the area of the following parallelograms. Show required steps. 1.) 3.5 m 2.4 m 2.) 7.8 ft 6.2 ft 4.16 ft
