There is no formula. That's why it's called irregular!

To find the area of irregular shapes, first, we need to divide the irregular shape into regular shapes that you can recognize such as triangles, rectangles, circles, squares and so forth. Then, find the area of these individual shapes and add them to get an area of irregular shap

Finding the area of an irregular shape is now quite easily done after watching the instructional video at [See related link below for the website] and it's for free

I assume you mean the calculation required. Split the irregular shape up into shapes for which you can find the area (eg rectangles, triangles), then the area of the shape is the sum of the areas of the smaller shapes.

For any irregular shape, you must divide it into shapes that are regular and find the area of those then add up all of the parts to find the area of the whole.

You approximate the irregular shape with many small regular figure, for example, long and thin rectangles.

You break it up into smaller shapes which are less irregular. If these are more regular, you can calculate their contribution to the perimeter, and their area. You can then add these together.

In real life, things do not always have a neat geometric shape. Chemical processes in living organisms depend on the surface area of cells or organs. these are of irregular shape. For example photosynthesis in trees depends on the surface area of leaves. All leaves have irregular shapes.
