What is the area of Figure ABCD?

LIke do I turn the 18in into 15in for the rectangle and 3in for the tiny triangle

If I'm reading this correct, that last bit of information about E is unneccesary. The area of a trapezoid is the average of the bases times the height. Since BC is perpendicular to the bases, (AB and DC) it is the height. To find the average of the bases, add them together and divide them by how many factors there are. So \(A = \frac {14 + 18}{2} \cdot 7 = 16 \cdot 7 = 112\).

Hope this helps!
