A = a h / 2  

  = r s                                 (5a)

r = a h / 2s                          (5b)

R = b c / 2 h                        (5c)

Trapezoid

Trapezium - trapezoid - area, height

The area of a trapezoid can be calculated as

A = 1/2 (a + b) h  

  = m h                           (6a)

m = (a + b) / 2                      (6b)

Hexagon - area, diameter

The area of a hexagon can be calculated as

A = 3/2 a2 31/2                             (7a)

d = 2 a 

  =  2 / 31/2

  = 1.1547005 s                              (7b)

s = 31/2 / 2 d  

   = 0.866025 d                              (7c)

Circle

Crcle - area

θr = angle in radians

θd = angle in degrees

Segment of Circle

Area of a segment of circle can be expressed as

A = 1/2 (θr - sin θr) r2

= 1/2 (π θd/180 - sin θd) r2                             (10)
