-Total area- 32,806.75 m2

-I don't think that my area is an exact measure of the space affected by the spill, but I think that my area is close to the area.

-I expect my area of the spill to be close to the actual area. I don't know if my area of the spill will be more or less than the actual spill area.

-I used Squares and Triangles to find out the area of the spill.
