A series of perpendicular offsets taken from a curved boundary wall to a straight survey line at an interval of $6 \: m$ are $1.22, \: 1.67, \: 2.04, \: 2.34, \: 2.14, \: 1.87$, and $1.15 \:m$. The area (in $m^2$, round off to 2 decimal places) bounded by the survey line, curved boundary wall, the first and the last offsets, determined using Simpson’s rule, is ________
