**10.4 Areas of Regular Polygons**

Geometry

2
**Objectives/Assignment**

Find the area of an equilateral triangle. Find the area of a regular polygon, such as the area of a square, rectangle, rhombus etc.

3
Important!!!

4
**Finding the area of an equilateral triangle**

The area of any triangle with base length b and height h is given by A = ½bh. The following formula for equilateral triangles; however, uses ONLY the side length.

5
**Area of an equilateral triangle**

The area of an equilateral triangle is one fourth the square of the length of the side times A = ¼ s2 s s s A = ¼ s2

6
**Finding the area of an Equilateral Triangle**

Find the area of an equilateral triangle with 8 inch sides. A = ¼ s2 Area of an equilateral Triangle A = ¼ Substitute values. A = ¼ • 64 Simplify. A = • 16 Multiply ¼ times 64. A = 16 Simplify.

7
**Area Theorems A = bh Area of a Rectangle**

The area of a rectangle is the product of its base and height. h b A = bh

8
**Area Theorems A = bh Area of a Parallelogram**

The area of a parallelogram is the product of a base and height. h b A = bh

9
**Area Theorems A = ½ bh Area of a Triangle**

The area of a triangle is one half the product of a base and height. h b A = ½ bh

10
**Justification You can justify the area formulas for triangles follows.**

The area of a triangle is half the area of a parallelogram with the same base and height.

11
**Areas of Trapezoids Area of a Trapezoid**

b2 h b1 Area of a Trapezoid The area of a trapezoid is one half the product of the height and the sum of the bases. A = ½ h(b1 + b2)

12
Area of a Kite The area of a kite is one half the product of the lengths of its diagonals. A = ½ d1d2 d1 d2

13
**Areas of Rhombuses Area of a Rhombus**

The area of a rhombus is one half the product of the lengths of the diagonals. A = ½ d1 d2 d2 d1

14
**Finding the Area of a Trapezoid**

Find the area of trapezoid WXYZ. Solution: The height of WXYZ is h=5 – 1 = 4 Find the lengths of the bases. b1 = YZ = 5 – 2 = 3 b2 = XW = 8 – 1 = 7

15
**Finding the Area of a Trapezoid**

Substitute 4 for h, 3 for b1, and 7 for b2 to find the area of the trapezoid. A = ½ h(b1 + b2) Formula for area of a trapezoid. A = ½ (4)(3 + 7 ) Substitute A = ½ (40) Simplify A = 20 Simplify The area of trapezoid WXYZ is 20 square units

16
**Finding the area of a rhombus**

Use the information given in the diagram to find the area of rhombus ABCD. Solution— Use the formula for the area of a rhombus d1 = BD = 30 and d2 = AC =40 15 20 20 A C 15 D E

17
**Finding the area of a rhombus**

A = ½ d1 d2 A = ½ (30)(40) A = ½ (120) A = 60 square units 15 20 20 A C 15 D E

18
Practice

20
**A = ¼ s2 Find the sum of bases Find the height of one isosceles**

b1 + b2 = 24*2 = 48 2. A = ½ * 48 * 9 = 216 m² Find the height of one isosceles triangle by using Pythagorean Formula H = 10² - 6² = 8² 2. A = ½ * 8 * 12 = 96 m²

25
Justification You can justify the area formulas for parallelograms as follows. The area of a parallelogram is the area of a rectangle with the same base and height.

26
**Using the Area Theorems**

9 Find the area of ABCD. Solution: Use AB as the base. So, b=16 and h=9 Area=bh=16(9) = 144 square units.
