area of the shaded region apart from the 6 to 9 additional trapezium
= 6*8=48
area of trapezium =h(s1+s2)/2=3*(4+2)/2=9
total area=48+9=57

Area of shaded region = (area of large 8 x 9 rectangle) - (area of unshaded trapezoid)
= (72) - (4 + 6)(3)/2
= 71 - 15
= 57
= B

For info on finding the area of a trapezoid see this free video - http://www.gmatprepnow.com/module/gmat- ... /video/874 (starting at 4:05)\

Cheers,
Brent

I am dividing the figure into 4 parts.

A - A rectangle with length 6 and breadth 4
B - A rectangle with length 6 and breadth 4

C - A rectangle with length 3 and breadth 2

D - A triangle with Base 2 and Height 3


Area of the entire figure = Area of A + Area of B + Area of C + Area of D

Area of A = 24
Area of B = 24
Area of C = 6
Area of D = 3

Total Area of the entire figure = 57 (24 + 24 + 6 + 3)

Hence answer is (B) 57
