Since the four sides are equal, this quad is a rhombus.

We know that one angle is 45 degrees. So we can find the height between AD and BC.

Let us say that the perpendicular dist between AD and BC is x.

then sin 45 = x/ 5 sqrt(2).

sin45 = 1/ sqrt (2).

hence x = 5.

Now , we know that the area is base * height = 5 sqrt(2) * 5 = 25 sqrt(2).

Thanks.

there is one more way to solve this sum

area is Base * Height

height can be found by drawing a perpendicular and then getting it by 45-45-90 triangle

height comes to 5
so area is 5 * 5 sqrt(2).
so 25 sqrt(2).

cheers
