question about precision

Needs Answer

I have to calculate the area of a quadrilateral (given sides and one angle) with high precision for uni. I tested my results with geogebra using the show 15 decimal places option, but they differ form the 7th significant digit on. Should trust my code or geogebra?

Please include a file. It's useless just to talk about it

sure thing:

"cuadriatero_lados.ggb" calculates the area given the sides a,b,c,d and angle 'alfa' as constants using the input line,

"cuadriatero_vertices.ggb" calculates the area given the points R,S,T,U in the same manner

en tus archivos veo dos cuadrilateros totalmente diferentes así que no sé qué comparar; ¿podrías mandar dos cuadrilateros con los lados de igual longitud y un angulo igual y que dé areas diferentes?

Also in both files you seem to be using GeoGebra's Polygon() command to calculate the area

it seems I didn't explain myself, I need to calculate the area programming and using trigonometry. I just wondered if geogebra was a reliable tool to check the answers with high precision

la cuestión es ¿por qué duda de los calculos hechos con GG?

si ha encontrado algo equivocado nos gustaría ver qué es
