Area of a Kite

Area of a Kite

$$$Area = { d_1 * d_2 \over 2}$$$

If you know the lengths of the diagonals — **d1** and **d2** — of a kite, finding the area is simple with the formula above.

Otherwise, you can use this method:

$$$ Area = a * b * sin(c) $$$

Where $$a, b$$ are the lengths of two unequal sides, and $$c$$ is the angle between them ($$sin$$ being the trignometric function sine **https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sine**)
