40 m^2 x (6/ 5)^2 = (57 + 3/ 5) m^2 or 57.6 m^2

Pentagon is a regular shape. An irregular shape is by which no length can be taken to calculate wanted dimensions without knowing dimensions of same shape in proportion.

I think what is tested here is simply "similar polygons". These polygons do not need to have a regular shape. We just have to ensure that we are "measuring the corresponding side".
