The area of the figure is

42.5

Explanation

Add the areas of the two triangles and the square to find the total area. The area of the square is 5^{2} = 25. Both triangles have a height of 5. The area of one triangle is \(\frac{1}{2} \times b \times h=\frac{1}{2} \times 3 \times 5=\frac{15}{2}=7.5\). The area of the other triangle is \(\frac{1}{2} \times b \times h=\frac{1}{2} \times 4 \times 5=\frac{20}{2}=10\). The total area is \(25+7.5+10 = 42.5\).
