The figure of the questions is: Now to find area: Sides of triangular section I = 5cm, 1cm and 5cm

Perimeter of the triangular section I = 5 + 5 + 1 = 11cm

Semi perimeter, s = = = 5.5cm

We use Heron’s formula to find the area of the section I,

Area of Section I = = = =  cm2

Area of Section I = 2.48 cm2 (approx.) ~ 2.5 cm2 Length of the sides of the rectangle of section II = 6.5 cm and 1 cm

Area of section II = 6.5×1 = 6.5cm2 Section III is an isosceles trapezium which is divided into two right triangles and one rectangle.
Now, Area of trapezium = Area (i) + Area (ii) + Area (iii)
= 1/2 × 0.5 × 1 + 1 × 1 + 1/2 × 0.5 × 1
= 1.5 cm2 Section IV and V are congruent right-angled triangles with height 1.5cm and base 6cm.

now area of triangle, Area of region IV and V = 2  4.5 cm= 9 cm2

Thus, total area is 2.5 + 6.5 + 9 + 1.5 = 19.5 sq cm
