## Pick's Theorem Method for finding the Area of a Polygon on a dot grid

It is relatively simple to calculate the area of a rectangle. A three by three square will have an area of 9 square units calculated by multiplying 3x3. A four by five rectangle has an area of twenty square units calculated by multiplying 4x5. A 4x5 triangle has an area of 10 square units calculated by multiplying 4x5 and dividing that rectangle by 2.

## Coordinate Plane Polygons
