# While finding area of triangles in coordinate geometry chapter, sometimes we get area in NEGATIVE values. Then what should we do?(example is in the pic)

Dear student,

In such answers we neglect the -ve sign of the answer as the area can't be -ve.

Regards

You have to take the mod value of (i.e positive value ) of the answer.
You are getting a negative answer because the placement of points(vertices) is in different quadrants, but area cant be negative. So take the positive value of the answer.
