# Area

Area is a term that refers to how much space a 2D shape or surface occupies. Area is measured in square units, such as cm2 or m2.

On a sheet of paper, draw a square using a pencil. It has two dimensions. The area of a shape on paper is the area that it occupies.

The area of a shape is calculated by dividing its length by its width. If the rectangle in question weren't on squared paper, we could still calculate its area by calculating 5cm x 5cm = 25cm2 .

The number of unit squares necessary to completely cover the surface area of a specific 2-D shape is used to calculate the area of a figure.

Common units of area measurement include square cms, square feet, square inches, square metres, etc.

Draw unit squares with 1-centimeter sides in order to calculate the area of the square figures shown below. As a result, the shape will be measured in square centimetres, or cm2. ## Area Calculating Formulas

There are several 2-D shapes all around us, including circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids. All of these shapes are tracable on paper. Since every shape is distinct and varied, its area is also determined in a different way. Determine the shape before locating the region. Use the relevant formula from the list below to get its area after that.

 Shape Area formula Circle A = π r² Where r is the radius of the circle Triangle A = ½ (b × h) square units Where, b is base and h is height Square Side × Side Rectangle A = l × w Where, l is length W is width Parallelogram A = b × h Where, b is base h is perpendicular height Trapezium Area = 1/2 × Sum of parallel sides × Distance between them
