1. Rogue

Area for what shape?

2. Grayfox5

baiscly square and rectangles

3. Grayfox5

some times triangles

4. Rogue

For squares and rectangles, its always length times width. A triangle is really half of a rectangle if you rearrange it, so its area is 1/2 base * height.$Rectangle: A = lw$$Square: A = lw = s^2$$Triangle: A = \frac {1}{2} bh$

that helps. thanks!

6. Rogue

No problem, just do some practice with them and you'll easily learn them all =)

7. Grayfox5

hopefully

8. UnkleRhaukus

or get some unit cubes and see how many it takes to cover the surface of the shape
