The area of a figure is the amount
of surface it covers. We measure
area in square units.
Find the area of the figure.
15 in.
A = lw

The area is about 135 in2.
Find the area of the figure.
13 in.
A = lw
7 in.
The area is about 91 in2.
You can use the formula for the area of a rectangle
to write a formula for the area of a parallelogram.
Imagine cutting off the triangle drawn in the
parallelogram and sliding it to the right to form a
rectangle.
The area of a parallelogram = bh.
The area of a rectangle = lw.
The base of the parallelogram is the length of the
rectangle. The height of the parallelogram is the
width of the rectangle.
Find the area of the parallelogram.

and Trapezoids
I can find the area of triangles and
trapezoid
You can divide any parallelogram into two
congruent triangles. So the area of each triangle
is half the area of the parallelogram.
Find the area of the triangle.
