    I think that the figure above represents the information you wrote. You can divide up the E into pieces and find the area of each piece, and then add all the areas together. I think it will be faster to find the area of the entire outer rectangle which is 12 in. by 10 in., and then subtract the two 5 in. by 7 in. rectangles.
