Question from DAVE, a student:

How do i find the area of an irregular figure?

Hi Dave,

If the shape is a polygon (the edges are straight lines) then I suggest that you look at the response that Stephen and Harley gave to an earlier question. If the shape is not a polygon the Harley's response to golf course manager might help.
