of the following is not true?
A. The diagonals of a rhombus are congruent.

is measured in square units
consistent with units
Example: If a rectangle is 6 inches wide and 4
feet long, what is the area?

Solution: Must convert units to make both
measurements consistent. 6 inches = ½ feet
 ½ ft x 4 ft = 2 ft²
 Area = 2 ft²
Area Formula
Parallelogram
A = bh
Rectangle
A = bh
Square
A = s²
Rhombus
A = bh
Trapezoid
A = (1/2)h(b1 + b2)

A = (1/2)(d1*d2)
Irregular
Break into parts & add
Key:
b – base
h – height
s – side
b1/b2 – base1/base2
d1/d2 – diagonal1/diagonal2
