One dimension   =  sqrt [ ( -4 - - 1)^2 + ( 1 - -2)^2 ]  = sqrt [ (-3)^2 + (3)^2 ] =

 

sqrt [ 9 + 9 ]  =  sqrt [ 18]   =   sqrt [ 9 * 2  ] =  3sqrt[2]

 

The other dimension  = sqrt [ ( -4 -  -6)^2 + ( 1 -  - 1)^2 ]  =  sqrt [ (2)^2 + (2)^2 ] =

 

sqrt [ 4 + 4] =  sqrt [8]  =  sqrt [ 4 * 2 ]  =  2sqrt[2]

 

 

So....the area  is     [  3sqrt (2)  * 2 sqrt (2) ]  =  6 * 2   = 12 units^2
