Shorter and quicker way? If we drop RS perpendicular to x-axis to meet x-axis in S, then OQRS is a trapezoid, whose area is ½ (3 + 4) (7) = 24.5; and the required area is obtained by chopping right triangles POQ and PSR out of 24.5 (see figure). Area POQ = ½ (4)(3) = 6, and Area PSR = ½ (4)(3) =...
