Where is the penalty area located in soccer?

There are two penalty areas, one on each end of the symmetrical field. Each box is centered on its goal, touching the end line, and it extends 18 yards from the end line and 18 yards out from the inside edge of each goalpost. Some youth organizations specify smaller penalty areas for certain age groups, and the youngest players often do not use a penalty area at all.

there are 33 boxes because if you count 3 that's 3. then the 2 boxes inside each big box that's 6 small boxes. and that makes 9 boxes. then you have 4 even smaller boxes. 4 multiplied by six makes 24. then you add 9 plus 24 and get 33.

What are the geometric shapes you find on the field?

The football field itself is a rectangle. It is divided in half into two smaller rectangles. At the centre point, the centre circle is found. Within each half there is the penaly area - another rectangle. This has within it another smaller rectangle, the 6 yard box. At the edge of the penalty area is a semi-circle, which denotes where players have to stand when a penalty kick is being taken. At each of the four corner flags there is a quarter circle which marks where the ball can be placed for a corner kick.
