# Areas of Triangles, Parallelograms and Trapezia

In this worksheet, students find the areas of triangles, parallelograms and trapezia. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   2D Shapes: Circles, Angles and Bearings

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will find the areas of triangles, parallelograms and trapezia.

You should already know the formulae for finding the areas of triangles and parallelograms.

Area of parallelogram = base x height

Area of triangle = ½ base x height

Area of trapezium = Average of parallel sides x height

Example

Find the area of this shape? Area of trapezium = ½ ×(3 + 12) × 10 = 7½ x 10 = 75 sq. units

Find the area of this trapezium.
