Answer :

To find the area of the quadrilateral PQRS, we divide the quadrilateral into two triangles by joining P and R.


So Area(PQRS) = Area(ΔPQR) + Area(ΔPRS)


Now,


Area(ΔPQR) = [x1 (y2 - y3) + x2 (y3 - y1) + x3 (y1 - y2)]


=[(-5)(-6-(-3)) + (-4)(-3-(-3)) + 2(-3-(-6))]


=[(-5) × (-3) + 0 + 2(3)]=21/2=10.5sq. units


Area(ΔPRS)=[x1 (y2 - y3) + x2 (y3 - y1) + x3 (y1 - y2)]


=[(-5)(-3-2) + 2(2-(-3)) + 1(-3-(-3))]


=[25 + 10 + 0]


=[35]=17.5 sq. units


Area(PQRS)=Area(ΔPQR) + Area(ΔPRS)


Area(PQRS)=10.5 + 17.5=28sq.units
