To calculate the area of a composite shape you must divide the shape into rectangles, triangles or other shapes you can find the area of and then add the areas back together. You may have to calculate missing lengths before finding the area of some of the shapes. Calculate the area of this compound shape.

## How do we find area of composite shapes?

To calculate the area of a composite shape you must divide the shape into rectangles, triangles or other shapes you can find the area of and then add the areas back together. You may have to calculate missing lengths before finding the area of some of the shapes. Calculate the area of this compound shape.

### How do you find the area of a composite figure 7th grade?

To find the area of a composite figure, separate the figure into simpler shapes whose area can be found. Then add the areas together. Be sure than none of the simpler figures have overlapping areas.

**Which shape is considered a composite shape?**

A composite or compound shape is any shape that is made up of two or more geometric shapes. The below shape is made up of a square and a triangle. The blue shape is made up of a square and a rectangle. The green shape consists oftwo triangles.

**What is a composite area?**

The area of composite shapes is defined as the area covered by any composite shape. A composite shape is made up of basic shapes put together. Thus, the area of the composite shape is found by individually adding all the basic shapes.

## How do you find the area of each shape?

Area is calculated by multiplying the length of a shape by its width.

### What is composite area?

**What composite figure means?**

A composite shape or a composite figure is a two-dimensional figure made up of basic two-dimensional shapes such as triangles, rectangles, circles, semi-circles, etc.

**How to find the area of composite shapes?**

The composite shape is a shape in which few polygons are put together to form a required shape. These shapes or figures can be made up of a combination of triangles, squares, and quadrilaterals, etc. Divide a composite shape into basic shapes like square, triangle, rectangle, hexagon, etc. to determine the area of composite shapes.
