I was wondering which would be the best way to perform the calculations on the attachment.A plot of land has been surveyed which gives the offset values from a straight boundary. Am I right in thinking drawing a sketch and then using simpsons rule,mid-ordinate or trapezoidal rule to get the area would be the way to go?

The first trapezoid has: .
