  • Answer:

    It is 8.5 unit squared

    Step-by-step explanation:

    so first you can make a  rectangle that is bigger than the shape.

    So you find the area of the rectangle.

    5 unit x 3 unit = 15 unit.

    Then you subtract the spaces that you don't need to find the area of.

    1 x 1 x 1/2 = 0.5  The small triangle on the top left corner of the shape

    4 x 3 x 1/2 = 6  The triangle on the bottom right of the shape.

    Then you add them and then subtract it from the total area.

    15 - 6.5 = 8.5

    The area of this shape is 8.5 unit squared
