Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The diagonals of your kite are 6 in. + 13 in. and 8.5 in. + 8.5 in. Do those additions. Then multiply the sums together and divide by 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I multiplied 10x11 and got 220 then divided it by 2 and got 110.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2First, 10 * 11 = 110, not 220. Where did you get 10 and 11 from? I don't see those numbers in the figure.
