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 Lshapes 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  Lshapes
Featured in these worksheets for grades 3 and 4 are rectilinear shapes. Decompose each Lshape into nonoverlapping rectangles, find the area of each rectangle, add them to find the area of the rectilinear shapes.
