    first you would need to find the area of the rectangle. Then you would find the area of the triangle with the formula A = 1/2 B H. To find the height you would need to sin rule.

    if you used the sin rule the length opposite 60 is \[\sqrt{48}\]

    if you used the sin rule again you would find the bottom length to be equal to 4.

    so the area of the triangle is equal to 8 root 3. \[8\sqrt{3}\]

    HOW U GET THAT?

    ok.. the area of the traingle is 1/2 b h right? 1/2 * 4 * \[\sqrt{48}\] I have gotten this by using right angle trig? sin cos tan?

    1/2 * 4 * \[\sqrt{48}\] = \[\sqrt{192}\] which is simplified to be\[8\sqrt{3}\]

    well i got the area of the triangle so all you need now is area of rectangle and add them together

    and sorry this has nothing to do with special triangles

    ill complete it for you... (hope you can understand this) the bottom of the rectangle is equal to 6 ( 10-4) the length is \[\sqrt{48}\] so its \[\sqrt{48}\] * 6 which is \[24\sqrt{3}\] so now we add these area together which is \[32\sqrt{3}\]

    i thought the bottom rectangle was 4?

    It says on the diagram the whole length which is the triangle and rectangle is equal to 10. The bottom of the triangle is 4. So the rectangle is 10-4. which is 6
