# Area Project

BY: MERCEDES PECK, HR 1

**How I approached the problem**

I used the formula of the rectangle or the triangle to get the original answer, then I divided it by 2 to get the final answer answer.

**The total of the oil spill**

28102.5 miles

** Do you think your area is an exact measure of the space affected by the spill?**

Yes

**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?**

I think my polygons are pretty accurate, my answers could probably be a little more then the actual spill area.
