Solution

Given that
DC = 17cm

AD = 9cm and BC = 8cm

 In ΔBCD we have

CD2 = BD 2 + BC2

⇒  (17)2 = BD2 + (8)2

⇒ BD2 = 289 - 64

⇒ BD  = 15

In ΔABD, we have

   AB2 + AD2 = BD2

⇒ (15)2  = AB2  + (9)2

⇒ AB2  = 225 - 81 = 144

⇒  AB = 12 

  ar ( quad , ABCD) =ar ( ΔABD) + ar ( Δ BCD)

⇒ ar ( quad , ABCD) = `1/2` ( 12 × 9 ) + `1/2` (8 × 17 ) = 54 + 68

 = 112cm2

⇒ ar (quad, , ABCD =`1/2`(12 × 9 ) +`1/2 ( 8  ×  15 )`

= 54 + 60cm2

= 114cm2

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
