## What is area in math? Definition of area in mathematics

Area is the size of a surface. In other words, it may be defined as the space occupied by a flat shape. To understand the concept, it's usually helpful to think about the area as the amount of paint necessary to cover the surface. This makes sense because area is the amount of substance or material that is occupied by a figure or object.
There are a number of useful formulas for calculating the area of simple shapes. In this section, you'll find not only the well-known formulas for triangles, rectangles, and circles but also other shapes, such as parallelograms, kites, or annuli. By the end of the section, you'll have a comprehensive understanding of how to calculate the area of any shape.

## How cam you calculate area?

Formulaic content can be tricky to write, but we've got you covered. In this section, you'll learn all about the formulas for the sixteen shapes featured in our area calculator. We'll list the equations only - their images, explanations and derivations may be found in the separate paragraphs below (and also in tools dedicated to each specific shape). So whether you need to know the volume of a cone or the surface area of a trapezoid, we've got you covered!

## Which quadrilateral has the largest area?

For a given perimeter, the quadrilateral with the maximum area is always a square. This follows from geometry - a perfect square has four equal side lengths, and a quadrilateral with four equal sides has the maximum area possible.

## What shape has the largest area given perimeter?

Given a given perimeter, the closed figure with the maximum area is a circle.

## How can I calculate the area of an irregular shape?

Before you can calculate the area of an irregular shape, you need to break it down into smaller shapes that you can calculate the area easily. This can be done by dividing the shape into triangles, rectangles, trapezoids, etc. Then, you can calculate the area of each of these subshapes. Finally, you can sum up the areas of all subshapes to get the final result.

## How can I calculate the area under a curve?

To find the area under a curve, you need to compute the definite integral of the function describing the curve between the two points that correspond to the endpoints of the interval in question. This can be done by finding the height of the curve between those points or by using another method if you know the specific function that you're approximating.
