Here's one way of finding the area:
Find the area of the entire outer rectangle. Then subtract the area of the samlle rectangle in the bottom middle.
A = LW - lw
A = (10 m)(12 m) - (2 m)(7 m)
A = 120 m² - 14 m²
A = 106 m²
I believe it is 106 Square meters
Easiest way to find area for these kind of shapes is to break them into smaller rectangles, this specific one can be broken 3 ways...
Right: 4m long, 7m tall
Top: 10 long, 5 tall *(12-7)*
Left: 4m long, 7m tall
*To find incomplete ones, you find clues in other sides, for instance the whole side was 12, the broken part was 7, therefor you just subtract 7 from 12, giving you 5 for the top.*
Then you just multiply...
Now, you have the area for three individual smaller rectangles. So you simply add them together to get the whole shapes area...
Therefor, your answer should be 106 square meters- if I'm not mistaken.
Hope this helps, brainliest is appreciated if its right, trying to rank up :)
Have a great day! cx
