Find the area of the following shape. You must show all work to receive credit. (10 points)
Here is the work shown:
We first calculate the area of triangle FAE. 3*4=15. 12/2= 6.
Next, we calculate the area of triangle AEB. 3*6=18. 18/2= 9.
Then, we calculate the area of another triangle made up of D, E, and the point at 5, -3. 6*1=6. 6/2= 3.
Finally, we calculate the area of the rectangle of the points 5, -3, E, B, and C. 6*6=36. 36/2= 18.
Our last step is to add together the bold parts. This gives us the final answer of 36.
Hope this helped!
