Hi - Do you think this is correct?

BC = AD

Area of Rectangle = (FB+AF).BC

Area of Rectangle = 72 units squared

Area = 1/2 bh

Area 1 = 1/2 FB.BC

Area 2 = 1/2 AF.AD

1/2 = AF.BC

A1 + A2 = 36 units squared

1/2 FB.BC + 1/2 AF.BC

1/2 [FB.BC + AF.BC]

1/2 [BC (FB + AF)

1/2.72 units squared - 36 units squared
