Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingHi MIF;
I tend to doubt it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #27 20120514 21:30:33

Re: Area of Polygon by Drawing
That is where I have a problem. Interpreting area as a real thing and mathematically. If the polygon is in the 3rd quadrant isn't the area negative? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #29 20120514 21:37:32
Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingIt isn't. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #30 20120514 21:53:34
Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingYes, his applet is showing that. It makes sense that area should be invariant under a simple translation. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #31 20120514 22:01:30
Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingYes,the app is wonderful. Just gonna try finding a formula for the complex polys.

Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingI do not think there is one. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #33 20120514 22:08:07
Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingI don't agree. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #34 20120514 22:14:09
Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingIt seems and this is a quote:
No unique answer! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #35 20120514 22:16:52
Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingWhat are the two ways?

Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingThat is just theory from Wikipedia and probably kaboobly doo. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #37 20120514 22:21:42
Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingWhy are you quoting kaboobly doo?

Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingYou like theory. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #39 20120514 22:30:39
Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingNot always true.

Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingArea is positive when going clockwise, but just use absolute value anyway. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #41 20120515 07:15:37
Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingI don't see negative values of area on that page.And the area can be negative only from the analytic point of view.

Re: Area of Polygon by DrawingThanks guys. I will look at the page now. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
