A Kite is a geometric shape which has 4 sides. A kite is the geometric figure which has a pair of adjacent sides equal to each other. The diagonals in a kite are perpendicular to each other and each diagonal divides the other diagonal into equal halves. Hence the diagonals bisect each other. Area of a kite is the region inside the geometric shape which is bounded by its sides.

Example 1: Calculate the area of the kite whose diagonal lengths are given to be 10m and 12m.

In order to find the area of the kite, we can use the length of the diagonals.

Area of a kite is given by, A = 1/2 * d1 * d2

where d1 and d2 are the lengths of the two diagonal in a kite.
Given d1 = 10m and d2 = 12m

Hence Area of the kite, A = 1/2 * 10m * 12m = 60m2

Area of the kite, A = 60m2

Example 2: Calculate the area of the kite whose diagonal lengths are given to be 6m and 15m.

In order to find the area of the kite, we can use the length of the diagonals.

Area of a kite is given by, A = 1/2 * d1 * d2

where d1 and d2 are the lengths of the two diagonal in a kite.
Given d1 = 6m and d2 = 15m

Hence Area of the kite, A = 1/2 * 6m * 15m = 45m2

Area of the kite, A = 45m2
