In the diagram. angle A is right, E is the midpoint of AB, D is the mipoint of AC, AB = 16 and AC = 12.

What is the area of AEFGD, where EF and GD are perpendicular to BC?

The area of AEFGD is 8.

That is incorrect, unfortunately :(

Area = 72 unit^{2 I think }

Yay that is correct! Thanks so much :DD
