Composite geometric figures are created by combining bits and pieces of basic figures, such as circles, rectangles, and triangles. These quizzes explore the problem-solving strategies that can be used to dissect these figures and determine areas, angles, and more.

One technique covered is adding lines and grids to a composite figure. For example, what is the total area of all of the shapes shaded green in the figure below?

Composite angles can be formed as well. Can you find the value of $$X?$$
