How do you know when Class E airspace starts at 700 feet AGL vs. 1,200 feet AGL?

Yes, this can be confusing since the altitudes are not actually shown on a sectional chart.

Recall that the thick and fuzzy magenta circle or set of lines indicate Class E airspace starting at 700 ft. AGL.

Class E starting at 700 ft AGL

Everywhere else, meaning anytime you’re outside of the thick and fuzzy magenta circle or set of lines, or nothing is being indicated on the sectional chart, Class E airspace starts at 1,200 ft. AGL.
