**Section Formula CBSE NCERT Solutions Chapter 7 Exercise 7.3 Question 4**

**4.** Find the area of the quadrilateral whose vertices taken in order are (-4, -2), (-3, -5), (3, -2) and (2, 3).

**Solution:**

Area of Quadrilateral ABCD = Area of Triangle ABD + Area of Triangle BCD **(1)**

**Using formula to find area of triangle:**

**Area of = **

Area of

sq units **(2)**

**Again using formula to find area of triangle:**

**Area of = **

Area of

sq units **(3)**

Putting **(2)** and **(3)** in **(1)**, we get

** Area of Quadrilateral ABCD = 11.5 + 16.5 = 28 sq units**
