For Q1, we can use the formula:

Area of triangle with vertices (x1, y1), (x2, y2), and (x3, y3) = $$\dfrac12 \cdot \left|\det\begin{bmatrix}1&x_1&y_1\\1&x_2&y_2\\1&x_3&y_3\end{bmatrix}\right|$$

Therefore, the area of the quadrilateral is $$\dfrac12 \cdot \left(\left|\det\begin{bmatrix}1&1&5\\1&2&3\\1&7&6\end{bmatrix}\right|+ \left|\det\begin{bmatrix}1&2&3\\1&7&6\\1&7&1\end{bmatrix}\right|\right) = \boxed{19\text{ squared units}}$$

I will leave the evaluation of determinants to you.

Q2)

Let P = (p, 0) and Q = (0, q).

Now, we find the equation of the straight line.

$$\text{Slope} = \dfrac{3-(-2)}{2-(-8)} = \dfrac12$$

Equation is $$y - 3 = \dfrac{x - 2}2$$.

Now, you just have to find the values of p and q using the equation.

The area of triangle OPQ is |pq|/2
