Answer:
It is 8.5 unit squared
Stepbystep 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
