comment Simplest way to calculate the intersect area of two rectangles
I thought because the area of a square would be calculated as (a-b)*(c-d), a negative area would mean that the area is rotating in the other direction (if you use vector). But I think the question is ill-posed anyways. Sorry for wasting time....

comment Simplest way to calculate the intersect area of two rectangles
thanks for the answers. It looks like it's easy using non-continuous functions. I was asking this question because my stomach told me that this should be in a form, e.g. Area = AB-CD+(A-C)*(B-D). Essentially something without the if condition (max is like if(a>b)?a:b though)
