## How do you find area?

To work out the area of a square or rectangle, multiply its height by its width. If the height and width are in cm, the area is shown in cm². If the height and width are in m, the area is shown in m². A square with sides of 5 m has an area of 25 m², because 5 × 5 = 25.

## How do you find an area of a shape?

Area is calculated by multiplying the length of a shape by its width. In this case, we could work out the area of this rectangle even if it wasn’t on squared paper, just by working out 5cm x 5cm = 25cm² (the shape is not drawn to scale).

## How do you find area list?

Area Formulas

- Area of a Rectangle = Base × Height.
- Area of a Square = Base × Height.
- Area of a Square = s
^{2} - Area of Triangle = ½(Base × Height)
- Area of Parallelogram = Base × Height.
- Area of Trapezoid = ½(Base
_{1}+ Base_{2}) × Height. - Area of Circle = π(radius)
^{2}= πr^{2}

## How do you find the area of irregular shapes?

Ans: To find the area of irregular shapes, first we need to divide the irregular shape into regular shapes that you can recognize such as triangles, rectangles, circles, squares etc. Then, find the area of these individual shapes and add them up to get the area of irregular shapes.

## What is the area in cm2?

Find the area of a rectangle in square centimeters by measuring the length and width of the rectangle in centimeters. Multiply the length of the rectangle by its width. If the rectangle has a length of 10 cm and a width of 5 cm, the equation is: 10 cm x 5 cm = 50 cm2.

## How do you figure surface area?

Surface area is the sum of the areas of all faces (or surfaces) on a 3D shape. A cuboid has 6 rectangular faces. To find the surface area of a cuboid, add the areas of all 6 faces. We can also label the length (l), width (w), and height (h) of the prism and use the formula, SA=2lw+2lh+2hw, to find the surface area.

## How do you find the area of a shape with 5 sides?

The area of a pentagon is the region that is covered by all the sides of the pentagon. It can be calculated by various methods according to the dimensions given. The basic formula that is used to find the area of a pentagon is, Area = 5/2 × s × a; where ‘s’ is the side length and ‘a’ is the apothem.

## How do you find the area with different sides?

How to use irregular area calculator?

- Step 1: Measure all sides of the area in one unit (Feet, Meter, Inches or any other).
- Step 2: Enter length of horizontal sides into Length 1 and Length 2. And Width of the vertical sides into Width 1 and Width 2.
- Step 3: Press calculate button.
- Our Formula: Area = b × h.
