How do you find the area of something? Do you multiply the numbers or what?

    Circle would be pi times radius squared. A square would be length times width. It depends on what exactly your finding the area of.

    Ok there are two different ways to do a trapezoid. You can break it up into 3 pieces, treating the end pieces as triangles and finding their areas (.5 times (base * height)), and then you add the area of the central square (length times width). Or there is a special formula for trapezoids. Area = (1/2) * (the two bases added together) * (height of trapezoid)
