Plot and connect the given points in order and determine the area of the resulting figure.
(4,2),(2,2),(2,4),(1,4),(1,3),(3,3),(3,4),(4,4)
A. 25
B. 30
C. 50
D. 62
E. 100

I connected all of the points and formed a strange looking figure. I could not identify the figure, but I divided it into 3 rectangles. I calculated the area of each rectangle and added them up:
A1 = (2(4))(2(4)) = 12.
A2 = (1(2))(4(4)) = 24.
A3 = (31)(3(4)) = 14.
At = 12 + 24 + 14 = 50 Sq. Units.
Sorry, but I can't draw the graph online.
