Calculate the area for each of the polygons below. If you do not know an equation to use, divide the polygon into other shapes to determine the area.

1. An equilateral triangle with a side of 1 inch

2. A square with a side of 2 feet

3. A regular pentagon with a side of 3 centimeters

4. A regular hexagon with a side of 10 cm

5. A regular heptagon with a side of 7 inches

6. A trapezoid where the height is 18 cm, base 1 = 16 cm and b2 = 8 cm.

7. A trapezoid where the height = 7 mm, base 1 = 26 mm and base 2 = 9 mm.

Fill in the missing information for the following trapezoids:

8. height = 19.8 cm

b1 = ________

b2 = 14.4 cm

area = 401.94 cm2

9. height = 23 mm

b1 = 23 mm

b2 = ________

area = 529 mm2

10. height = ________

b1 = 20 cm

b2 = 21 cm

area = 205 cm2

11. height = 28.9 m

b1 = 26.9 m

b2 = ________

area = 806.31 m^2

12. If the area of a parallelogram is 690.84 m^2 and the height is 20.2 m, what is the length of the base?

13. If the base of a rectangle is 28 cm and the area is 588 cm^2, what is the height of the rectangle?

14. If the height of a rectangle is 26.1 m and the base is 17.3 m, what is the area of the rectangle?

15. If the height of a parallelogram is 34 cm and the base is 15 cm, what is the area of the parallelogram?

16. What is the area of a parallelogram with height 26 cm, base 16 cm, and side length 28 cm?

17. What is the area of a regular octagon with a side of 6 cm?

18. What is the area of this polygon?

ls_XF = 53 mm ls_XV = 72 mm ls_VR = 16 mm

ls_FB = 31 mm ls_BT = 31 mm ls_EU = 47 mm

ls_UL = 31 mm ls_TL = 88 mm ls_DE = 16 mm

ls_RM = 70 mm ls_MC = 21 mm ls_DC = 70 mm

19. What is the area of this rectangle?

20. What is the area of this polygon?
