It's difficult to tell you the answer without seeing a diagram of where the two triangles are in relation to each other. i.e one could be inside the other, or beside the other, or both could be in a big rectangle etc...

### How do you find the are of a cross?

You could consider the cross as two intersecting rectangles. Calculate the area of both rectangles and the area of the intersection (overlap). Then area of cross = sum of the areas of the rectangles minus the area of the overlap.

you just times it by two

### How do you work out the area of an L shape?

You should break it down in to smaller shapes. Two rectangles. Then figure out all the lengths. Multiply to find the area of the two rectangles. then add the products to get the final area.

### What is the area of a L shaped room?

An L-shaped area can be divided into two rectangles. The total area is the sum of the areas of the two rectangles.

### How can finding the area of a rectangle help you find the area of other shapes?

Some irregular shapes can be broken down into a combination of rectangles. Think of a solid "L" shape. It might be difficult to find the area of that. But if you think of it as two rectangles, it's a lot easier.

### How do you find the area of a storage box with the sides 6.3 inches 12.6 inches and 4.2 inches and turn it into square inches?

Do you mean the surface area of the box? If so... What you do is break the surface area into 6 rectangles: Two rectangles have sides of length 6.3 and 12.6 inches. Two rectangles have sides of length 6.3 and 4.2 inches. Two rectangles have sides of length 12.6 and 4.2 inches. Find the area of each of the six rectangles (using the standard formula for the area of a rectangle, A = W x H), and add up all six. The sum of the areas of the six rectangles will be the surface area of the box. Since the lengths of the sides are in inches, the area will already be in square inches, and therefore you don't have to "turn it into square inches".

### How do you convert perimeter into square meters?

There is no standard relationship between perimeter and area. For example, you can have two rectangles that have the same perimeter, but different area.

### How do you find the area of an L shape?

Assuming you have the dimensions of each of the sides - treat it as two separate rectangles. Using the measurements you have, work out the areas of both rectangles - then add them together.

### How do you find depth of a rectangle given the widthlength and area?

Rectangles don't have depth. If your figure has three dimensions, divide the area by the product of the two dimensions you know. The quotient will be the third dimension.

### What is the area of a rectangle with a length of 12 and width of 8?

96 units squared. To find area of rectangles, simply multiply the two dimensions (length and width) which in this case are 12 and 8.
