Dear tutors and supporters,
I need to find the area of this shape.
I know I can decompose it into little rectangles so that is what I have done. I am going to upload the picture and then I'll post the work that I have done so you can correct it or give a tip.
thanks,

I divided the shape into 3 rectangles
a,b and c

DIMENSIONS FOR a
l=14
h=3
Area= lw
=143
422

rectangle b
dimensions
l=24 in
h=8 in
= area=24 8
=1922

and then c,
l=17 in
w=5 in
=area 852

now adding up all areas
19+42+85()
=1462

is this correct?
Danke

248+143+175=319

Instead of 19 you must use 192. The 2 is missing although correctly calculated before.
