    Use tan ratio to find it.

    \[\tan \theta = \frac{opp}{adj}\] \[\tan 45 = \frac{7}{adj}\] \[adj = 7\]|dw:1330659614940:dw|

    Now you have all the values, \[\frac12 * 7 * (8+8+3+7)\]Solve.:)

    Because we have to choose either one of the three ratios.. If you feel confusion, try writing the 2 other ratios as well.. And try applying them. Later you will find that u can't use those here.
