## anonymous 4 years ago is there an easy way to find area in 6th grade math?

1. anonymous

Area for what shape?

2. anonymous

baiscly square and rectangles

3. anonymous

some times triangles

4. anonymous

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!

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

hopefully

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