## Finding Surface Area of Our Diamond KIte

## 1. Decompose the Diamond Into Smaller ShapesThe first step into finding the surface area of the diamond is to decompose the diamond into smaller shapes. I chose to decompose it into two triangles. | ## 2. Find the Area of Each Smaller ShapeThe kite in all is 3 ft times 3 ft. So when you divide that in half, you get 1.5. So finally, the measurement of each triangle in that make up a diamond is 1.5 times 1.5 because the diamond is 3 ft time 3 ft. | ## 3. Add the two smaller shapes' areaWhen you add both of the triangles' surface area you get 2.25! |
