If I fold any square in half diagonally, what two new shapes will I get? www.LearnMathFastBooks.com ANSWERS TO GEOMETRY WORKSHEET 6 1. Since a square has all equal sides the base and height are the same. Using the formula A = bh, the Area = 8 x 8. The area is 64 square inches. 2. Using the formula A = bh, the Area = 10 yards x 40 yards. The area is 400 square yards. 3. Using A = ½ bh the area is ½ x 3 x 2. The area of the triangle is 3 square feet. 4. Your back yard measures 30 feet x 40 feet. What is the area of the back yard? 30’ x 40’ = 120 square feet. 5. What is the area of a 9 foot tall square? All sides are 9’ so the area is 9’ x 9’. The area is 81 square feet. 6. My Geometry book measures 11” x 8”. How many square inches are on the cover? 11” x 8” = 88 square inches 7. The floor measures 20’ x 24’. 20’ x 24’ = 480 square feet so you need 480 tiles. 8. The triangle is 8 feet tall. The base of the triangle is 5 feet. 8 x 5 = 40 and half of 40 is 20, so the triangle is 20 square feet. 9. 5 10. Two triangles. 8 7 8 35 = 64 35 64 1 35 x 2 = 128 35 The area is 128 sq. inches www.LearnMathFastBooks.com
