Area is the size of a surface! It helps to imagine how much paint would cover the shape. There are special formulas for certain shapes: Example: What is the area of this rectangle? The width is 5, and the height is 3, so we know w = 5 and h = 3: Learn more at Area of Plane Shapes. We can also put the shape on a grid and count the number of squares:

The formula for the area of a sector is (angle / 360) x π x radius, but the diameter of the circle is d = 2 x r, so another way to write it is (angle / 360) 2 x π x (diameter / 2). Visual on the figure below:

Area of a square = side times side. Since each side of a square is the same, it can simply be the length of one side squared. If a square has one side of 4 inches, the area would be 4 inches times 4 inches, or 16 square inches. (Square inches can also be written in 2 .) Be sure to use the same units for all measurements.
