Area of Composite Shapes
Composite shapes are composed, or built, of known shapes. For example, two rectangles can be put together to form an "L-shape", a triangle stacked on a rectangle forms a "house shape", and a semi-circle balanced atop an isosceles triangle looks a lot like an "ice cream cone". The area of a composite shape is found by adding and/or subtracting the areas of the composite pieces.
