## How do you calculate square footage with multiple sides?

How to Calculate the Square Feet of Odd Shapes

- Measure all the dimensions or sides of the area.
- Draw the area on graph paper using the measurements you obtained.
- Divide the drawing into shapes.
- Figure the area of each shape.
- Add the areas of all the individual shapes to find the total square footage.

## What is the area in square units of trapezoid ABCD?

To get the area of a trapezoid, you will do the height times the b1 plus b2 divided by 2. In this case, h = 2; b1 = 5; b2 = 20. [2 * (5 + 20)] / 2 = (2 * 25) / 2 = 50 / 2 = 25 square units.

## Which of the following is equivalent to a 1 2h b1 b2?

the formula for the area of a trapezoid is a=1/2h(b1+b2).

## What does a 1 2h b1 b2 mean in math?

| Certified Educator. A = 1/2h(b1+b2) Multiply both sides by 2. 2A = h(b1+b2) Multiply both sides by 1/h.

## What is the formula for 1/2 BH?

So, the area A of a triangle is given by the formula A=12bh where b is the base and h is the height of the triangle. Example: Find the area of the triangle. The area A of a triangle is given by the formula A=12bh where b is the base and h is the height of the triangle.

## What is a ½BH?

The formula for area of a triangle is. A = ½bh where b represents value of base and h represents value of height.

## What formula is a LW?

A formula is an algebraic relationship between two or more variable quantities. For example, A = lw is a formula for the area, A, of a rectangle of length l and width w.

## What is transposing formula?

Transposition is a method to isolate the variable to one side of the equation and everything else to the other side so that you can solve the equation.

## Which of these is an example of a literal equation?

ax-by=k is an example of literal equation.

## What is the relation between the variable in the equation a LW?

The relation between the variables in the equation A=lw is; A varies jointly as lw. Explanation: Variation problems states that involves a simple relationships or formulas, involving one variable being equal to one term.

## What is the equation of variation?

The formula y=kxn y = k x n is used for direct variation. The value k is a nonzero constant greater than zero and is called the constant of variation.
