how do you find the area of a polygon with the given vertices: (-3,0)(-1,0)(-2,3)(-2,-2)
i spose it aint a pretty one; kinda bent up and twisted too
(-3,0)(-1,0)(-2,3)(-2,-2) (2,2) (2,2) (2,2) (2,2) ---------------------- (-1,2) (1,2) (0,5) (0,0) heres one thats got a vertex on the origin, might be easier to see
|dw:1327283308853:dw| its a kite :)
|dw:1327283383697:dw|
we gots 2 tris; each with a base 5 and a height of 1 area tri = bh/2 = 5(1)/2 and we gots 2 of them so id say 5
with any luck, that made sense :)
yes it did! thank you!
