Hey friends! New to this forum!! Can I find the area of a quadrilateral if just the lengths of all sides are known? I don't know the internal angles. Please help Thanks in advance!

If you know the lengths of the diagonals in addition to the lengths of the sizes then you can find the area, though. Also (as mentioned above) you can do it if you know the quadrilateral can be inscribed in a circle using Brahmagupta's formula (the extension of Heron's formula to quadrilaterals).

Think about it . . . Suppose we have a quadrilateral with four equal sides. What is its area? Code: * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
