An artist is designing a kite like the one show below. Calculate the area to determine how much material she will need to create the kite.
A kite with two top triangles with height of 5 inches and a base 7.5 inches. The bottom two triangles share the base but have a height labeled 14 inches.

We have two triangles....one with a height of 5 inches and the other with a height of 14 inches

And both have  the same base = 7.5 inches

 

So.....the total area is just the area of both triangles =

 

(1/2) base ( 14 + 5) =

 

(1/2) (7.5) ( 19)   =  71.25 square inches
