The quadrilateral

The quadrilateral ABCD is composed of two right triangles, ABD and BCD. For side lengths: |AD| = 3cm, | BC | = 12cm, | BD | = 5cm. How many square centimeters (area) does the quadrilateral ABCD have? The angles of DAB and DBC are right.

Correct answer:

S =  36 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

AD=3 cm BC=12 cm BD=5 cm  AB=BD2AD2=5232=4 cm S1=2AD AB=23 4=6 cm2  S2=2BD BC=25 12=30 cm2  S=S1+S2=6+30=36 cm2
