1. Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids I can: find the area of triangles and trapezoids.

2. The figures show a fractal called the Koch snowflake. It is constructed by first drawing an equilateral triangle. Then triangles with sides one-third the length of the original sides are added to the middle of each side. The second step is then repeated over and over again.

3. The area and perimeter of each figure is larger than that of the one before it. However, the area of any figure is never greater than the area of the box, while the perimeters increase without bound. To find the area and perimeter of each figure, you must be able to find the area of a triangle.

4. 11 8 6 17 Additional Example 1: Finding the Perimeter of Triangles and Trapezoids Find the perimeter of each figure. 7 A. Add all sides. 4 P = 4 + 7 + 10 10 = 21 units Add all sides. B. P = 8 + 11 + 6 + 17 = 42 units

5. Try This: Example 1 Find the perimeter of each figure. Add all sides. 9 6 P = 9 + 6 + 11 A. = 26 units 11 22 Add all sides. B. 6 P = 6 + 22 + 5 + 16 5 = 49 units 16

6. A triangle or trapezoid can be thought of as half of a parallelogram.

7. A = (8)(4) = 16 units2 1 2 Triangle: The area A of a triangle is one-half the base length b times the height h.

8. A = (2)(3 + 7) = 10 units2 A = (h)(b1 + b2) 1 2 1 2 Trapezoid: The area of a trapezoid is one-half the height h times the sum of the base lengths b1and b2.
