In this lesson I will go over the area formulas for basic figures. The key thing to keep in mind when you’re doing area and volume problems is to use the proper units of measure. Also, feel free to use a calculator to keep your solutions accurate. When using a formula you will need to understand how to identify the correct values to plug into the variables. Moreover, once you’re values are all plugged-in you need to know how to simplify the remaining numeric expression by using the order of operations. Finding the area of a basic figure is not hard if you use the right formula and units of measure. Lastly, take good notes as we will be going over lots of formulas.
