Areas of Irregular Figures

Areas of irregular figures can be determined by dividing the figure into squares and rectangles.

For Example:

1. Find the area of the given figure:


Area of a rectangle ABDC = 3 × 1

= 3 sq. cm.

Area of a rectangle EFGD = 2 × 1

= 2 sq. cm.

Therefore, Total Area = 3 + 2

= 5 sq. cm.

Area of the given figure = 5 sq. cm.
