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.
These would be MUCH easier to get an answer if you would include the diagram rather than a desription......
Its just he dosen't have one I believe the type of school site he use's dosen't include that unless if you mean something else of course
Yeah I know but every time I browse find my thing click it upload it does nothing it just goes blinck the upload station and makes me redo!
Area of top triangle = 1/2 b h = 1/2 5 * 7.5 = 18.75 sq in there are two of these triangles = 37.5 sq in
Area of lower 1/2 7.5 * 14 = 52.5 = 105
Total area = 37.5 + 105 = 142.5 in^2
