What is the formula for finding the area of a quadrilateral?
If a convex quadrilateral is defined by all its sides and all its interior angles, it can be broken into two triangles and the area can be expressed as a sum of the areas of these triangles.

The formula for finding the area of a quadrilateral depends on the type of quadrilateral. Here are the formulas for some common types:

For a rectangle or parallelogram: Area = base × height

For a square: Area = side × side (or side squared)

For a trapezoid: Area = (1/2) × (sum of parallel sides) × height

For a kite: Area = (1/2) × product of diagonals

For a rhombus: Area = (1/2) × product of diagonals

For a general quadrilateral, if you know the lengths of all four sides and one angle (or the lengths of two diagonals and an angle between them), you can use the formula for the area of a general quadrilateral, known as Brahmagupta's Formula:
Area = √((s  a)(s  b)(s  c)(s  d)), where s is the semiperimeter of the quadrilateral, and a, b, c, d are the lengths of its sides.
These are some common formulas for finding the area of different types of quadrilaterals.

When evaluating a onesided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

 A parallelogram has sides A, B, C, and D. Sides A and B have a length of #3 # and sides C and D have a length of # 4 #. If the angle between sides A and C is #(7 pi)/18 #, what is the area of the parallelogram?
 A parallelogram has sides with lengths of #16 # and #9 #. If the parallelogram's area is #18 #, what is the length of its longest diagonal?
 Two rhombuses have sides with lengths of #8 #. If one rhombus has a corner with an angle of #(7pi)/12 # and the other has a corner with an angle of #(pi)/6 #, what is the difference between the areas of the rhombuses?
 Two opposite sides of a parallelogram each have a length of #18 #. If one corner of the parallelogram has an angle of #(5 pi)/12 # and the parallelogram's area is #120 #, how long are the other two sides?
 If a quadrilateral is both a rectangle and a rhombus, then is it a square?
