Lets try something new with the parallelogram. Lets try something new with the parallelogram. Earlier, you saw that you could use two trapezoids to make a parallelogram.

Lets try something new with the parallelogram. Earlier, you saw that you could use two trapezoids to make a parallelogram. Lets try to figure out the formula since we now

know the area formula for a parallelogram. Trapezoid Trapezoid Trapezoid

So we see that we are dividing the parallelogram in half. What will that do to the formula?

Trapezoid So we see that we are dividing the parallelogram in half. What will that do to the formula?

bh Trapezoid So we see that we are dividing the parallelogram

in half. What will that do to the formula? bh 2 Trapezoid

But now there is a problem. What is wrong with the base? bh 2 Trapezoid

So we need to account for the split base, by calling the top base, base 1, and the bottom base, base 2. By adding them together, we get the original base from the parallelogram.

The heights are the same, so no problem there. bh 2 Trapezoid

____ triangles. Kite Now we have to determine the formula. What is the area of a triangle formula again?

bh 2 Fill in the blank. A kite is made up of ____ triangles. So it seems we

should multiply the formula by 2. Kite bh *2 = bh 2 Kite

bh *2 = bh 2 Now we have a different problem. What is the base and height of a kite? The green line is called the symmetry line, and the red line is half the other diagonal.
