**-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.**
