How to calculate areas of basic shapes for your projects.

Area of a Circle:  Area = π r² (pi x radius squared)

  • π = 3.141
    r = 10’Formula = 3.141 x 10 x 10
    Area = 314.1 sq. ft.

Area of a Square or Rectangle:  Area = Length x Width

  • Length = 20′
    Width = 10′
    Formula = 10′ x 20′
    Area = 200 sq. ft

Area of a Right Triangle:  Area = 1/2 (base x height)

  • Base = 10′
    Height = 10″
    Formula = 1/2 x (10 x 10)
    Area = 50 sq. ft.
