# Overlapping area given vertices

As stated in the title, is it possible to determine the overlapping area of polygons given the coordinates of the vertices of each polygon?

Well as i see it, it only involves finding the area enclosed by a group of lines whose equations we know. The final area will also be a polygon whose vertices(coordinates) we know, hence its area . · 2 months, 1 week ago

The group of lines do not define the actual overlapping area though. Say two polygons have zero overlapping area. You see where this is going? · 2 months, 1 week ago

Okay... I get it now. Did you think of this while solving a problem? If so ,please share it . · 2 months, 1 week ago
