The vertices of a polygon are: I have to show that the area of the polygon is 1 + 4^(-1) + 4^(-2) + ... + 4^(-n). How would I go about doing that? Not sure how to proceed.

I tried using it and could not get the answer.

What's wrong with it?
Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this? I tried using the formula for the general polygon, but I can't get 1 + 4^(-1) + 4^(-2) + ... + 4^(-n) for the area.
