    Well I'm fairly sure the two top angles are 90 degrees

    First you divide the shape into a rectangle and a triangle. The area of the rectangle part is just 1.2*8=9.6. The legs of the triangle are 1.7-1.2=.5 and 8. To find the area of the triangle, you multiply .5*8=4. Then divide that by 2 and you get that the area of the triangle is 2. So, the total area is 2+9.6=11.6m^2.
