To calculate the area of a rectangle, you simply multiply the length by the width. The formula for calculating the area of a rectangle is: Area = length x width.
The formula for finding the area of a triangle is: Area = 1/2 x base x height. To use this formula, you need to know the base and height of the triangle.
To calculate the area of a circle, you need to know the radius. The formula for finding the area of a circle is: Area = π x (radius)^2. For most calculations, you can use an approximation of π = 3.14.
Perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape, while area is the measure of the surface inside a shape. Perimeter is measured in linear units (such as inches or centimeters) while area is measured in square units (such as square inches or square centimeters).
To find the area of irregular shapes, you can break the shape into smaller, simpler shapes and calculate the area of each shape separately. Then, you can add the areas together to get the total area of the irregular shape.
