  # Areas of Triangles, Parallelograms and Trapezia

In this worksheet, students find the areas of triangles, parallelograms and trapezia. This content is premium and exclusive to EdPlace subscribers. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   2D Shapes: Triangles, Quadrilaterals and Polygons

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

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
