If you have two functions that match the shape's top half and bottom half, then you can use integration.

1. Use a Planimeter

2. Draw it on squared paper and count squares

3. Draw it onto paper cut it out weigh it. Weigh a rectangular area of same paper then use the weight ratio times the area of the rectangle to find the unknown area.
