Pascal and Calculating Area
To calculate the area of a shape in Pascal, you need to know the formula for that specific shape. Here are the formulas for calculating the area of some common shapes:
- Rectangle: The area of a rectangle is calculated by multiplying its length by its width.
Area = Length * Width
Square: The area of a square is calculated by multiplying the length of one side by itself.
Area = Side * Side
Triangle: The area of a triangle is calculated by multiplying its base by its height and dividing the result by 2.
Area = (Base * Height) / 2
Circle: The area of a circle is calculated by multiplying the square of its radius by the mathematical constant π (pi).
Area = π * Radius^2
Please note that in Pascal, you can use the
pi constant provided by the language for the value of π.
If you have the necessary measurements for a shape, you can use the appropriate formula to calculate its area in Pascal.
