Wrong on at least two counts: A triangle need not be irregular

and a triangle is not a three dimensional shape.

Any pyramid other than a regular triangular pyramid

(tetrahedron), any prism other than a cube are some examples.

### How do you do volume of a irregular shape that is two dimensional?

If a shape is two dimensional it has NO volume - volume
is an attribute of THREE dimensional shapes.
If you meant the AREA of an irregular two dimensional
shape, then divided it up into areas which are not irregular and so
you can calculates them, and sum the areas of these non-irregular
shapes.
If you meant the volume of an irregular THREE dimensional
shape, then a similar process can be followed by dividing it up
into three dimensional shapes you can can calculate the volume of
and summing them, though if it is an irregular object that you are
physically holding, then you can find its volume by finding the
increase in volume of a liquid (In a regular container) when the
object is submerged into that liquid.
