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)
