    |dw:1436981758315:dw| like I know the area of this is \[A=\frac{1}{2}d_1(p_2+p_1)\]

    though we could also look at the area in terms of the other diagonal

    |dw:1436981915339:dw| and we could say the area of that same quadrilateral is \[A=\frac{1}{2}d_2(p_3+p_4)\]

    now I guess we can make the assumption that they are talking about \[DC+AB+d_1=20 \\ \text{ and we have both } 100=d_1(p_1+p_2) \text{ and } 100=d_2(p_3+p_4)\]

    \(\large \color{black}{\begin{align} &a+c+e=20,\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ &e>a,e>b,e>c,e>d,\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ &f>a,f>b,f>c,f>d,\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ &\frac{\sqrt{(a+d+e)(a+d-e)(a+e-d)(d+e-a)}}{4}+\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ &\frac{\sqrt{(b+c+e)(b+c-e)(b+e-c)(c+e-b)}}{4}=50\hspace{.33em}\\~\\~\\~\\~\\ &\frac{\sqrt{(d+c+f)(c+d-f)(d+f-c)(c+f-d)}}{4}+\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ &\frac{\sqrt{(b+a+f)(b+a-f)(a+f-b)(f+b-a)}}{4}=50\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ \end{align}}\) some might be useful relations.

    if it was cyclic quadrilateral I wonder if it would be easier
