35cm²

Step-by-step explanation:

This is a composite shape so break it down into its individual shapes and get their areas then add them up to find the shape's total area.

Area of Triangle:

= 1/2 * base * height

= 1/2 * 8 * 5.75

= 23 cm²

Base = 4 + 4 = 8cm

Area of the Trapezium

= (a + b) / 2 * height

a is top length

b is bottom length

= (4 + 8) / 2 * 2

= 12 cm²

Add them up:

= 23 + 12

= 35cm²
