Name: ________________________________ Date: ____________________________ Use known measurements (e.g., base and height) to calculate desired measurements (e.g.

, area) of triangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids MP Use known measurements to calculate desired measurements with no significant errors N Use known measurements to calculate desired measurements with a few significant errors U Use known measurements to calculate desired measurements, with many significant errors

Benchmark MA.5.4.5 ME Use known measurements to calculate desired measurements with accuracy

A) Use the formula to find the area of the triangle.

h=5.5cm

b=10cm

B)

Use the formula to find the height. A= 28 sq inches h=? b= 7 inches

C) Select a possible base and height below. 1. h = 3 cm and b=5 cm 2. h = 3 sq cm and b=5 sq cm 3. h = 3 cm and b = 10 cm 4. h = 5 cm and b = 7 cm

A = 15 sq cm
