What is the area of the composite figure whose vertices have the following coordinates?

(−2, −2)(−2, −2) , (4, −2)(4, −2) , (5, 1)(5, 1) , (2, 3)(2, 3) , (−1, 1)

___  units²

Sorry for the easy question, I'm just dumb

Area of a rectangle = W X L Area of a rectangle = 5 X 2 Area of a rectangle = 10 Area of triangle 1= 1/2 X B X H Area of triangle 1= 1/2 X 2 X 2 Area of triangle 1= 1/2 X 4

What is the area of the composite figure whose vertices have the following coordinates?

(−2, −2) , (4, −2) , (5, 1) , (2, 3) , (−1, 1)

$$\begin{array}{|r|r|r|r|r|} \hline \text{Point} & x & y & \\ \hline 1 & -2 & -2 &\\ & & & (-2)(-2) - 4(-2) & = 12 \\ 2 & 4 & -2 & \\ & & & 4\cdot 1 - 5 (-2) & = 14 \\ 3 & 5 & 1 &\\ & & & 5\cdot 3 - 2 (1) & = 13 \\ 4 & 2 & 3 &\\ & & & 2\cdot 1 - (-1)3 & = 5 \\ 5 & -1 & 1 &\\ & & & (-1)(-2) - (-2)1 & = 4 \\ 1 & -2 & -2 & \\ \hline & & & & \text{sum} = 48 \\ & & & & \text{area of the composite figure } = \dfrac{\text{sum}}{2} = \dfrac{\text{48}}{2} = \mathbf{24} \\ \hline \end{array}$$
