Section 10.1

Area of a Parallelogram

  • Formula: A=b x h
  • Base multiplied by height

Area of a Trapezoid

  • Formula: A=1/2(b1+b2)h
  • Base 1 and Base 2 are the two bases, doesn't matter which is which
  • Add base 1 and base 2 together, then multiply by the height, then multiply by 1/2
  • Height on a slant, perpendicular to the base

Area of Squares

  • Formula: A=b x h
  • Base times height
  • Same as parallelogram

Area of a Triangle

  • Formula: 1/2 x b x h
  • Half times base times height
  • Square/Parallelogram divided by 2

Section 10.2

Area of a Circle

  • Formula: pi x radius squared
  • pi= 3.14, 22/7, or pi button

The following video explains how to get the area of a circle clearly. It also shows that if you only have the diameter of the circle, you can still figure out the area by dividing the length of the diameter by 2 to get the radius.

Solids Classification


  • have two congruent bases (same size, same shape)
  • other faces are rectangles
  • named by the shape of it's base (i.e: rectangular prism)

  • has one base, that is a certain shape like a prism
  • named for shape of it's base (i.e: triangular pyramid)
  • other faces are triangles
  • faces come to a vertex at the top


    • has two congruent bases
    • bases always circular
    • bases always parallel
    • no faces, edges, or vertices

More Solids


  • has one circular base
  • no faces or edges
  • lateral surface comes to point at top
  • similar to pyramid, only circular and no triangular faces


  • basically a ball
  • formed by all points in space that are the same distance from a fixed point called the center


This is a cone, where there is one circular base and one lateral surface.

Section 10.4

Surface Area of a Prism



Area of the base multiplied by 2,

plus the perimeter times the height

Surface Area of a Cylinder



Area of the base multipied by 2,

plus the circumference times the height

Circumference: 2*pi*radius

The following video clearly teaches you about the surface area of prisms and cylinders.

Solving for Surface Area of Retangular prisms, Right Triangular prisms and Cylinders

Section 10.5

Surface Area of a Pyramid



Area of the base,

plus one half the product

of the perimeter and the slant height.

surface area of a cone



Area of the base (pi*r^2)

plus the product of pi times

the radius times the slant height

Section 10.6

Volume is the amount of space that an object occupies.

Volume of a prism



area of the base

times the height.

Volume of a Prism - - Math Help

volume of a cylinder



area of the base (pi*r^2)

times the height

Section 10.7

volume of a pyramid



area of the base multiplied

by the height, times one third.

Volume of a cone



area of the base times the height,

multiplied by one third.

area of the base: pi*radius^2

Real Life Tie-Ins

These are some examples of geometry in real life.

Some of the most modern examples are:

  • The Equator and Prime Meridian (perpendicular lines)
  • Hershey's Kiss (cone)
  • Pyramids of Egypt (pyramid)
