How do you find the area of an irregular shape? The shape is shaped like a cat's head. Please help me!

Try dividing it into sections, finding the area of each section, then adding them all together. Many shapes will resolve into triangles, squares, and circles. (For example, the ears would be small triangles.)

you find it by multiplying the shape then add it by the sides or the edges to get your answer.
