its simple, x is a horizontal line, x = 5 is a vertical line and y = x is a line inclined at 45 degree with horizontal and vertical. so these three lines form a right angle triangle. Here the base is 5 and angle is 45 degree. now tan 45 = perpendicular /5 therefore perpendicular = 5 (tan 45), so perpendicular (height) = 5 now area of triangle = (1/2) x base x height = 1/2 x 5 x 5 = 5 sq. unit

from "perpendicular (height)" i mean perpendicular i.e height and from "x is a horizontal line" i mean x axis is a horizontal line. there are other ways to solve this question. like to find intersection of line y =x and and x = 5, which will give (5, 5) then solve it by the method of triangle (as i explained above or by a formula (which i don't remember, but you can check in your text book)
