Find the area and perimeter of each polygon below. Show all work. Homework Help ✎
Divide the figure into two separate shapes.
Afterwards, find the area for each shape and then add them together.
The piece shared between the trapezoid and the rectangle is 5 - 2 = 3 because the red rectangle has side 5. This makes the base of the trapezoid 8.
Area of Shape = Area of Trapezoid + Area of Rectangle
Total area = 36 units²
