  • kite 2A two-dimensional figure that is a quadrilateral with two pairs of adjacent sides that are congruent.
  • 2 diagonals
  • a = b, c = d
  • 4 sides
  • 4 vertexs

Area of a Kite formula

\(\large{ A_{area} =\frac { {d'}  \; {D'} }{2} }\)

Where:

\(\large{ A_{area} }\) = area

\(\large{ d' }\) = diagonal

\(\large{ D' }\) = diagonal

Diagonal of a Kite formula

\(\large{ d' = 2\; \frac {A}   {D'} }\)

\(\large{ D' = 2\; \frac {A}   {d'} }\)

Where:

\(\large{ d' }\) = diagonal

\(\large{ D' }\) = diagonal

\(\large{ A_{area} }\) = area

Edge of a Kite formula

\(\large{ a = \frac {p}   {2}\; - c   }\)

\(\large{ c = \frac {p}   {2} \;- a   }\)

Where:

\(\large{ a, b, c, d }\) = edge

\(\large{ p }\) = perimeter

Perimeter of a Kite formula

\(\large{ p= 2\; \left( a + c   \right) }\)

\(\large{ p= 2\;a + 2\;c }\)

Where:

\(\large{ p }\) = perimeter

\(\large{ a, b, c, d }\) = edge
