## Grayfox5 Group Title is there an easy way to find area in 6th grade math? 2 years ago 2 years ago

1. Rogue Group Title

Area for what shape?

2. Grayfox5 Group Title

baiscly square and rectangles

3. Grayfox5 Group Title

some times triangles

4. Rogue Group Title

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$
