    It helps if you plot the points first, then you can find the length of the sides of the triangle.
    area of a triangle is
    1/2 base times height.

    I could also i think find the area of the square/rectangle and minus the pieces that are not part of the triangle

    Knights, If you are in analytic geometry, I am pretty certain your teacher expects an analytical approach, not a graphical approach. See the example I posted.
