Summary (Part 2)

37

Area of “Rectangle”: 5 ft x 10 ft = 50 ft2

Area of Triangle50 ft2 ÷ 2 = 25 ft2

5 ft

10 ft

Try It (As a Class): Draw and label a triangle with a base of 5 ft and a height of 10 ft. Then find the area.

Hmmm…

Oh yeah… Half of 50 is 25!

Area of “Rectangle”: 8 in x 3 in = 24 in2

Area of Triangle24 in2 ÷ 2 = 12 in2

3 in

8 in

#1) Draw and label a triangle with a base of 8 in and a height of 3 in. Then find the area.

Hmmm…

Oh yeah… Half of 24 is 12!
