  1. I connected all of the points and formed a strange looking figure. I could not identify the figure, but I divided it into 3 rectangles. I calculated the area of each rectangle and added them up:

    A1 = (-2-(-4))(2-(-4)) = 12.

    A2 = (1-(-2))(4-(-4)) = 24.

    A3 = (3-1)(3-(-4)) = 14.

    At = 12 + 24 + 14 = 50 Sq. Units.

    Sorry, but I can't draw the graph online.
