Vocabulary

Area

Area is the space within the perimeter of a two-dimensional figure.

Perimeter

Perimeter is the distance around a two-dimensional figure.

Perpendicular

Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect at a 90^{\circ} angle. The product of the slopes of two perpendicular lines is -1.

Right Angle

A right angle is an angle equal to 90 degrees.

Right Triangle

A right triangle is a triangle with one 90 degree angle.

Area of a Parallelogram

The area of a parallelogram is equal to the base multiplied by the height: A = bh. The height of a parallelogram is always perpendicular to the base (the sides are not the height).

Area of a Triangle

The area of a triangle is half the area of a parallelogram. Hence the formula: A = \frac{1}{2}bh \text{ or } A = \frac{bh}{2} .
