# Area Command

From GeoGebra Manual

- Area( <Point>, ..., <Point> )
- Calculates the area of the polygon defined by the given points.
**Example:**`Area((0, 0), (3, 0), (3, 2), (0, 2))`

yields*6*.

- Area( <Conic> )
- Calculates the area of a conic section (circle or ellipse).
**Example:**`Area(x^2 + y^2 = 2)`

yields*6.28*.

- Area( <Polygon> )
- Calculates the area of the polygon.

**Notes:**

- for Polygons, the absolute value of the Algebraic Area is calculated (which gives unexpected answers for self-intersecting polygons)
- In order to calculate the area between two function graphs, you need to use the command IntegralBetween.
- See also the Area tool.
