# Oil Spill ProjectBy Teagan Anders

Introduction-

Find the total area of the spill in miles.

• Using a ruler, you will have to measure the different quadrilaterals in centimeters then convert to miles.
• 1 cm. = 15 mi.

Questions-

1. Taking a second look at your sectioned polygons from your map, do you think your area is an exact measure of the space affected by the spill?

Answer: I think it's pretty accurate. I had to measure to the nearest shape, so it's not going to be exact.

2. How accurate do you think your polygons compare to the actual spill area? Do you expect your answer to be more or less than the actual spill area?

Answer: I think that my answer is a bit less than the spill area because since I had to draw to the nearest shape, some of the spill got left out, but not much.
