Area of the shaded region is the sum of the area of the rectangle and the area of the right-angled triangle

Area of rectangle = $$20*30 = 600$$
Area of triangle = $$\frac{1}{2}*50*30 = 25*30 = 750$$

Therefore, the area of the shaded region is $$600 + 750 = 1350$$(Option C)

We can split the image into 2 areas, one rectangle and one triangle.

Area of rectangle = 30 * 20 = 600
Are of triangle= (50*30)/2 = 750

Ans: C

Area of a trapezoid = (1/2) * (Sum of bases) * height = (1/2)*(20 + 70)*30 = 1350

20x30 = 600

70-20 = 50

h= 30

area of triangle = 1/2 x 30 x 50 = 750

750+600 = 1350

(C) imo
