What is the area of the kite? (This was all that was given)Will you please show your work? I don't really understand how to find the area of kites, so it would be really helpful :)

Accepted Solution

The area of a kite is (1/2) * x * y, where x and y are the length of the two diagonals. In this case, the length of the two diagonals are 10 ft and 2 ft.
Plug that in the equation, we get 1/2 * 2 * 10. We multiply the 2 and 10 first to get 20, that leaves us with 1/2 x 20, which is 10, so the area of this kite is 10 ft squared.
