so i decided to split it into two parallelograms

- anonymous

or does that not work?

start with drawing line between A and C

- anonymous

okay

- Rhystic

two parallelograms will not work as in a parallogram the opposite sides need ot be of equal length. You can approach it multiple ways. Easiast in my opinion would be to just make 4 triangles.

- anonymous

yeah thats what i did at first

- anonymous

i drew lines between B an F, C and F, and P and F

- anonymous

ok put a point a (-2,3) and draw a line between this* point and point F
*This point let me show you

Thats a bad diagram :P hope u can relate something

- anonymous

so lets day i wanted to start with the triangle A,f,(-2,3)

- anonymous

a,-2,3 would be the height?

- anonymous

yep, look for some shapes you recognize and that you know how to find the area of .
Going further it will look like.

- anonymous

ok and base would be the -2,3 ,F

- anonymous

i would need to find the distance for both of those right?

- anonymous

...

- anonymous

yeah co ordinates are mentioned accordingly u can find out length or distances

- anonymous

ok so im gonna star out with the firs triangle

- anonymous

yeah u mean ABC

- anonymous

the right triangle i was asking about earlier

- anonymous

A, -2,3, f

- anonymous

yeah fine.. go on

- anonymous

ok im gonna find the distance of a and -2,3

- anonymous

apparently, yes

- anonymous

Hope from here u can proceed...
after you add up the areas, you get the final answer, the area of the entire shape. :)

- anonymous

so the distance is 3?

- anonymous

i just need someone to make sure im correct

- anonymous

yeah AF is 3.. what will be area of triangle AGF

- anonymous

both height and base is 3 so it would be 1/2x3x3=4.5

- anonymous

cool genius. right. Further , go for ABC

- anonymous

so for abc what is the base and height?

- anonymous

you can use distance formula, right

- anonymous

yes but idk which lines is the base and height for the triangle after i do the distance formula and start to do the area

- anonymous

ok it will be complicated go for base*height formula... calc height and base

- anonymous

draw perpendicular from B to the base. coordinates are mentioned.. you will get trough distance formula

- anonymous

I got height as 3. see what u got

- anonymous

wait so we made it into a smaller triangle?

- anonymous

we have just calculated height and base AC. nothing else.

- anonymous

wait i think i got this! im gonna do it and tag you in another post with my full answer

- anonymous

ohk.. good luck.

- anonymous

According to my calc, these are the final values ....
Area of ABC= 13.5
Area of AGF=4.5
Area of CGHD=36
Area of HED=3
Adding up gives final answer....
