Calculate the area of two-dimensional figures including triangles, parallelograms (rectangles, squares, and rhombuses), and trapezoids
What is area? Area is the amount of space taken up by a flat shape (a two-dimensional figure). For example,
It is always important to label the area with the correct "units" so that it is clear what type of measurement is being used. Each measurement will be denoted with an exponent of "2" because area is in "square" units. For example,
