Filled area inside a closed curve
Posted:

Dears, Consider a closed curve that contains some holes. I would like to show that the filled area can be calculated by subtracting the area of holes from area of the curve. Is there any theorem that can prove it? I do not need to calculate the area. To clarify my question I provide a shape for my question http://imageshack.us/photo/myimages/231/curver.png/ Thanks a lot.
