a rectangle 10x10

a right triangle with legs 20 and 20

a parallelogram with base 20 and height 10

area: 100+200+200

I'm sure you can come up with other scenarios.

Rectangle

Measurement:

Length = 20m

Width = 20m

Area = 200m2

An isosceles triangle

Measurement:

Base = 25m

Height = 16m

Area = 200m2

Parallelogram

Measurement:

Base: 25m

Height: 4m

Area = 100m2

Total Area = 200m2 + 200m2 + 100m2 = 500m2.

Oh, so all we need to do is make combinations, so that all the area adds up to 500m2. Thank you Steve and Aryan!
