Dodecahedron. The 5 "Platonic Solids" are: Cube/ 6 square sides Tetrahedron/ 4 triangles Rhomboid/ 8 triangles Dodecahedron/ 12 pentagons Icosahedron/ 20 triangles

The diagonals of a square for example divides it into 4 isosceles triangles

The answer depends on how simple of complicated the shape is. For a reasonably simple shape, break it don into shapes such as triangles, parallelograms and trapezia, and circles or ellipses. Measure the dimensions of these shapes in feet and then, using standard formulae, calculate their areas - which will be in square feet. Add the results together to get the area of the shape.For more complicated shapes you may need to approximate the area using the above shapes to approximately match the shape.

Yes, any polygon can be composed using only triangles.

A square is one of the simplest shapes that can be tessellated. Tessellation is the means of using a repeated shape to build a larger shape with no gaps or overlaps.

A parallelogram.

There are infinitely many configurations for the required shape and so the dimensions cannot be listed.

Without the triangles of a tangram all that is left is the parallelogram and the small square. So using only the small square yes (the small square itself), otherwise with the square and the parallelogram from a tangram no.

using four of them you make a square then using the remaining two make a criss cross in the middle of the square.
