Weekly Blog 23- Areas
Hello fellow bloggers!
This week we learned all about areas in geometry class. In fact, we just took a test on them. Very early on we learn the basic ones: rectangle, square, triangle. However, there are many more formulas to finding areas that I have just learned!
Here's a list:
Rectangle/Square/Parallelogram: A=Base x Height
Trapezoid: A= 1/2Height x Base 1 + Base 2
Rhombus/Kite: A= 1/2 Diagonal 1 x Diagonal 2
Regular Polygon: A= 1/2 Apothem x Perimeter
My favorite area to find is the rhombus. This is because I never knew how to do it before just a couple days ago. I find it fascinating to learn new things! Also, there is sometimes algebra involved, which I really enjoy!
What's your favorite?
Hope you have a good week!
