Area of kite = area of triangle ABC + area of triangle ADC
Be careful!
Once you know the length of the diagonals, you can just multiply them and divide the result by 2.
Examples
1 ) Find the area of a kite with diagonals that are 6 inches and 18 inches long.
Area = (6 × 18) / 2 = 108 / 2 = 54 square inches.
2)
When the diagonals of a kite meet, they make 4 segments with lengths 6 meters, 4 meters, 5 meters, and 4 meters. What is the area of the resulting kite.
Area = (8 × 11) / 2 = 88 / 2 = 44 square meters
