Math Time!

Perimeter:

Now,it's time to do some math!

First,I will be finding the perimeter of my diamond kite.To find the perimeter of a diamond kite you have to go through 3 simple steps.

Steps:

1.First, I collected my data.(5cm,5cm,2cm,2cm,)

2.Next,I added all of my sides together.(5+5+2+2=?)

3.Finally,I have my answer!The perimeter of my diamond kite is 14cm.

Area:

Next,I will be finding the area of my kite.To find the area of a diamond kite you have to go through 8 simple steps.

Steps:

1.First,I collected the data that I needed.(4cm,2cm,1.75cm)

2.Then,I split the diamond into two triangles.

3.I multiplied 2x4=8cm.

4.Then,I divided 8/2=4cm.That was my answer for triangle A!

5.For triangle B i multiplied 1.75x4=7cm.

6.Then,I divided 7/2=3.5cm

7.Lastly I added 3.5+4=?.

8.Finally,I the area of my kite 7.5cm squared.
