square ABCD has sides of length 12 units each. Points W, X, Y, and Z lie on sides AB, BC, CD, and DA, respectively, so that AW = 1/2 AB, BX = 1/2 BC, CY = 1/3 CD, and AZ = 1/4 DA. What is the area of the quadrilateral WXYZ?

IDK
If you are confused with the 12x and 144x^2 (which is a general case), set x=1, so the side of the square is 12 units (as given in the question.
|dw:1440269114269:dw|
Then calculate area of the four corner triangles: |dw:1440269166364:dw| The area of the square is 12*12=144 u^2 Area of the quadrilateral is 144-(sum of the areas of the four triangles). Can you take it from here?
So if each sides are 12. The area of the rectangle is 144. then add all of the triangles together subtract that from 144.
