We can compare the areas of the shapes to the probability that points will get chosen inside them.

Area of the Triangle = bh/2

= 7*4/2

= 14 m2

Area of the Trapezoid = (ab/2)h

= (8*13/2)*4

= 52*4

= 208 m2

Area of the Rectangle = bh

= 17*25

=  425 m2

Now, the final probability is =

$${14 + 208}\over{425}$$

= 222/425
