Bisect it creating 2 triangles. Find the area of each triangle then add them together.

"Bisect" implies cutting it exactly in half. Doing that may not result in triangles. Connecting two opposite corners will always result in 2 triangles. Your method is good after that, provided that enough information is available to compute the area of the triangles.

My bad.... You are correct... I should have said to draw a line from one angle to another making 2 triangles.
