if we're going to work out the area of

the kite we're going to need the

diagonals and they are the dimensions of

this particular yellow vivid bright

yellow kite right over here so we're

going to work out the area of it two

steps number one write out the area of a

kite the formula and then calculate it

and it's all about multiplying the

diagonals which are the dimensions from

this corner to that corner and also from

this corner all the way across to that

corner and the diagonals are given here

please take note all units are in

centimeters and because it's area the

area will be in centimeters squared so

let's write out the formula area of a

kites equals 1/2 times x times y okay

let's drag and drop and put all the

values we have from here into here it's

a rather simple process so first of all

let's write up behalf times now the

first diagonal is X straight across

there it's from one corner to the other

it's this corner all the way to that

corner that's 85 centimeters times the Y

which is straight across there from that

corner to that corner that's 20

centimeters all we need to do now is to

multiply that out 1/2 times 20 is 10 10

times 85 850 total area here in this

vivid yellow kite
