### Is a pentagon a rigid structure?

A pentagon is a 5 sided geometrical polygon whose 5 interior

A pentagon is not a rigid structure unless the angles of the
pentagon are "reinforced" or "fixed" so that they can't change. The
only naturally rigid shape is a triangle. That is why many
structures such as bridges have girders arranged in triangle
formations.

### What is a rigid shape?

A rigid shape is when you cant push/pull on it and make it turn
into a different shape. You can make shapes rigid by adding
"braces", which are lines that you put inside the shape to make
triangles (which are rigid). For instance, a square is not
rigid. To make it rigid, you would put a brace inside diagonally.
This would create TWO triangles, and therefore, rigid.

### What is the area of the figure with 25cm 7cm 14cm 12cm 12cm?

Since there are five numbers given it is assumed that the figure
in question is a pentagon.
Unfortunately, a triangle is the only polygonal shape that is
rigid. A pentagon, with all five sides of known lengths is not
rigid - it can be flexed in the same way that a square can be
flexed into a rhombus. The area of a rhombus can take any value
from 0 up to the value of the square: the exact value is
indeterminate. Similarly...
