This problem is a checkpoint for area and perimeter of polygons. It will be referred to as Checkpoint 7B.

For each figure below, find the area and the perimeter.

  1. A rectangle: width is 8 centimeters and length is 5 centimeters.

  1. A triangle with a base of 23 in, left side 11 in, and right side 17 inches.  Two internal triangles are created by a line segment, of 7.7 in, drawn from the upper vertex, to the base, at right angles.

  1. A parallelogram, slanted right, with bottom, 27 cm, Left, 18 cm.  A right triangle is created by a line segment of 17 cm, drawn from the top left vertex, to the bottom side, at a 90 degree angle to the bottom.

  1. A trapezoid with horizontal, parallel bases: bottom is 20 m, and top is 10 m, and non parallel legs, of 9 m, and 12 meters. A dashed line, labeled 8.8 m, perpendicular to both bases, connects the bases.
