After you sketch it, it is easy to see that you can split the area up into 2 triangle and a square, whose areas are 28, 20 and 100 , for a total of 148

or

list the coordinates in a column, repeating the first point

-4 0

10 0

10 10

0 14

-4 0

the area is (1/2)( sum of downproducts - sum of upproducts)

- (1/2)(0+100+140+0 -(0+0+0-56)

= (1/2(240 + 56) = 148
