In summary, area is the measurement of space within a 2-dimensional figure and is typically measured in square units. The formula for finding the area of a rectangle is A = length x width, while the formula for finding the area of a circle is A = πr². Different shapes have different formulas for finding area, such as A = 1/2 x base x height for a triangle and A = 1/2 x (base 1 + base 2) x height for a trapezoid. The area of a figure cannot be negative as it represents a measure of space and must always be a positive value.

$5\cdot3=15\text{ sq. units}$.

Any quadrilateral whose diagonals $$\displaystyle d_1$$ and $$\displaystyle d_2$$ are perpendicular will have area equal to $$\displaystyle \dfrac{1}{2}d_1d_2$$.

## What is the definition of area?

Area is the measure of the amount of space inside a 2-dimensional figure. It is typically measured in square units such as square inches or square meters.

## How do you find the area of a rectangle?

To find the area of a rectangle, you multiply the length and width of the rectangle. The formula for area of a rectangle is A = length x width.

## What is the formula for finding the area of a circle?

The formula for finding the area of a circle is A = πr², where π is approximately 3.14 and r is the radius of the circle.

## Do all shapes have the same method for finding area?

No, different shapes have different formulas for finding area. For example, the area of a triangle is calculated using the formula A = 1/2 x base x height, while the area of a trapezoid is calculated using the formula A = 1/2 x (base 1 + base 2) x height.

## Can the area of a figure be negative?

No, the area of a figure cannot be negative. It is a measure of space, so it must always be a positive value.
