Composite Shapes Worksheets | Area of Compound Shapes

This assemblage of calculating the area of compound or composite shapes worksheets for 6th, 7th and 8th grades includes rectilinear shapes, rectangular paths or L-shapes and two levels of compound shapes that offer a combo of rectangles, squares, parallelograms, rhombus, trapezoids, circles and triangles. Find a combination of two shapes in level 1, while level 2 offers three or more geometric shapes. Decompose the shapes into basic geometrical shapes, find the areas by adding or subtracting regions using the whole number and decimal dimensions.

Area of Rectilinear shapes | L-shapes

Featured in these worksheets for grades 3 and 4 are rectilinear shapes. Decompose each L-shape into non-overlapping rectangles, find the area of each rectangle, add them to find the area of the rectilinear shapes.

Area of Rectangular paths

Split each rectangular path into rectangles, figure out the area of individual rectangles, add or subtract the areas to find the area of the paths featured in these worksheets for grade 3 and grade 4.

Two levels of difficulty with 5 worksheets each

Area of Compound Shapes | Adding regions - Level 1

The compound shapes here are a combination of two shapes like squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, parallelograms and trapezoids. Students are expected to split the compound shapes, find the area of individual shapes and add to compute the area.

Type: Whole Numbers, Decimals (3 worksheets each)

Area of Compound Shapes | Adding regions - Level 2

Composite shapes in level 2 comprise three or more geometric shapes. Decompose each shape and find the area of individual figures, combine them to determine the area of compound shapes in these 6th, 7th and 8th grade worksheets.

Type: Whole Numbers, Decimals (3 worksheets each)

Area of Compound Shapes | Subtracting regions - Level 1

Work out the area of each decomposed shape and subtract the area of the unshaded portions which could be circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, parallelograms or trapezoids to find the area of the shaded portion in these area of compound shapes worksheets.

Type: Whole Numbers, Decimals (3 worksheets each)

Area of Compound Shapes | Subtracting regions - Level 2

Calculate the area of the composite shapes by breaking them into known shapes. Sum up the areas and subtract the unshaded regions to find the area of the shaded portions. Level 2 comprises three or more shapes in each problem.

Type: Whole Numbers, Decimals (3 worksheets each)

Area of Compound Shapes | Revision Worksheets - Level 1

Review skills with this set of worksheets for grades 6 through 8. Break down each compound shape into two standard shapes, find their areas using formulas, add or subtract them to compute the area.

Type: Whole Numbers, Decimals (3 worksheets each)

Area of Compound Shapes | Revision Worksheets - Level 2

Decompose the compound shapes into three or more plane shapes. Deduce the area of the shaded and unshaded regions, add and subtract the areas to determine the area of the composite shapes.

Type: Whole Numbers, Decimals (3 worksheets each)

Area of Compound Shapes on Grids

The 6th, 7th and 8th grade students determine the dimensions of the decomposed shapes using the units on the x and y axes, and calculate the area of the shaded portions of the shapes presented on grids.
