I am trying to plot two polygons as shown in Figure 1. I am using the coordinates of the vertices as shown in the following code, but my plot (Figure 2) doesn't quite match Figure 1. I will appreciate any help.
clear all
X1=[28.15, 31.89, 46.22, 51.89, 55.37, 55.16, 38.49, 29.19, 28.15, 55.37, 154.84, 51.89, 55.37];% Vertices coordinates
Y1=[53.74, 66.27, 84.8, 80.83, 58.56, 58.00, 42.43, 48.6, 53.74, 58.56, 85.41, 80.83, 58.56];
X2=[28.15, 31.89, 46.22, 51.89, 55.37, 55.16, 38.49, 29.19, 28.15, 55.37, 154.84, 51.89, 55.37];
Y2=[53.74, 66.27, 84.80, 80.83, 58.56, 58.00, 42.43, 48.60, 53.74, 58.56, 85.41, 80.83, 58.56];
figure,
A =[X1.'; X2.']; B =[Y1.'; Y2.'];
plot(A,B,'LineWidth', 0.75)
xlim([0,100]);
ylim([0,100]);

patch(X1(1:8),Y1(1:8),'y','EdgeColor','k')
patch(X1(10:end),Y1(10:end),'y','EdgeColor','k')

Thanks for your prompt answer. For the purpose of my work, I don't want to use the "patch" function, but instead plot the polygons using lines.
