Definition

  • Irregular shape is a shape that has angles of different sizes and sides of different lengths.
  • Compared to regular shapes, irregular shapes are often much harder to name because don’t look like the more conventional regular shapes.

Summary

  • In finding the area of  irregular shapes, you need to divide the irregular shape into regular shapes that you know such as rectangle, triangle, square, circle and etc.
  • Now, we can find the total area of the irregular shape by adding the areas of the regular shapes which we obtained from dividing the irregular shape.
