In the rectangular coordinate system above, if the base of the triangle is parallel to the x-axis what is the area of the triangle?

(1) b – f = 0 and a – e = –4
(2) f – d = –3 and c – e = –2

(1) b – f = 0 and a – e = –4

b-f=0 does not give us any new information because we know that already from the fact that the line is parallel to X axis

a-e=-4 tells us that the base length is 4 units

We don't know about the height

1 is insufficient

(2) f – d = –3 and c – e = –2

f-d=-3 gives the height of the triangle to be 3 units

c-e=-2 gives us no useful information because we don't know if c lies exactly between a and e

2 is insufficient

(1)+(2)

We have the base length and height and so the area can be calculated

(1)+(2) is sufficient

Answer is (C)
