I might be wrong, but I would expect that the evaluation of the formulas
don't depend on the shape type. If it does, it feels we don't understand
the general rule, so we work the problem around with evaluating a
formula in different ways for different shape types.

Sure, if special-casing on the shape type improves the situation, then
it's better than nothing. I would keep it simple: just create an enum
with the different cases, and then you can have a switch to handle each.
If the function gets large, extract the handling of complicated cases to
their own functions.
