How to find the area of composite figures?

A composite figure or shape consists of two or more shapes.

Step 1: Break the composite shape into smaller parts. Look for rectangles, squares, triangles, circles, and trapezoids.

Step 2: Find the area of each part.

Step 3: Add the areas.

**Area and Perimeter of Composite Figures**

Example:

A party goods company is making novelty crowns out of paper. They start with a rectangular piece of paper and then cut three semicircles (each with a 6 inch diameter) out of the top to create a crown. Find the area and perimeter of the crown.
