Write two expressions you could use to find the area of each square figure
Write two expressions you could use to find the area of each square figure
Ollie,
I suppose s= the side of a square figure so
A_{square}= s * s = s^{2}
also
since a square is really two right triangles together when a diagonal is drawn then
the area of one triangle is
A_{triangle} = 1/2bh where b=the base and h= the height
so the area of the square is
A_{sqare} = 2*(1/2)bh = bh
Hope that helps!
