Let the unlabeled point at (12,0) be called X

The area of the quadrilateral OACB equals the (area of large ∆ AOX) - (area of small ∆ BCO).

Area of large ∆ AOX:

Base OX = 12*
Height AO = 6
Area = \(\frac{b*h}{2}=\frac{(12*6)}{2}= 36\)

Area of small ∆ BCO:

Base BX = 8
Height = 2 (from y-coordinate of point C)
Area: \(\frac{(8*2)}{2}= 8\)

Area of quadrilateral OACB:
(Area of large ∆) = (area of small ∆)
(36 - 8) = 28

Answer B

*subtract x-coordinates of points O and X to get distance: (12 - 0) = 12. Same method for all other distances.

OA:B

\(O(x_{1},y_{1}) =(0,0)\)
\(B(x_{2},y_{2}) =(4,0)\)
\(C(x_{3},y_{3}) =(8,2)\)
\(A(x_{4},y_{4}) =(0,6)\)

Area of quad OBCA \(=\) \(\frac{1}{2}|x_{1}y_{2}+x_{2}y_{3}+x_{3}y_{4}+x_{4}y_{1}-x_{2}y_{1}-x_{3}y_{2}-x_{4}y_{3}-x_{1}y_{4}|\)
\(=\frac{1}{2}|0*0+4*2+8*6+0*0-4*0-8*0-0*2-0*6|\)
\(=\frac{1}{2}|0+8+48+0-0-0-0-0|\)\(=\frac{1}{2}|8+48|= \frac{56}{2}=28\)
