    You might get something like that, or area of a quadrilateral - although it is rare.

    Check out question 10 on the June 2016 C1 paper available on Edexcel website.
    There are a lot of ways to approach it, one of them being splitting it into a triangle and trapezium and finding the area of the triangle and adding it to the area of a trapezium. [ trapezium area: 1/2 x (a + b) x height ]

    I'm inconsistent I can get 73/75 but also get 65/75 on another paper due to silly errors like 8/2 = 7 (lol)

    Any area would come up- different question plus different volume qs
    for eg cone, trapezium ,pyramid etc
