    E is the point of intersection of AC and BD.so AC=58 ft which is AE+CE=32+26= 58.
    Now we have 2 triangles ACB and ACD.
    Area of triangle ACB= base.height/2
    58 times12/2=348 ftsquare
    Area of triangle ACD=58 times 26/2=754 square ft
    To find the area of the quadrilateral ,we add the areas of two triangles which is 348+ 754= 1102 ft square
