Composite Shapes Triangles Parallelograms Squares Rectangles A=LxW A=1/2xBxH Area = 1/2 times the length of the base times the height Area = length times width to find the area of composite shapes... break the shape down into and What is the formula for the area of a triangle?? OR What is the formula for the area of a parallelogram?? OR What are parallelograms?? 5 5 8 9 What is the area of the square?
