Answer: (1) 252 square meter.
Explanation:-
Given-
In the diagram-

RE: What will be the Area of Field? If


The diagonal of a quadrilateral shaped field = 24 m
Then, the area of triangle ABC = 1/2 x BE x AC
= 1/2 x 13 x 24 = 156 square meter
And, the area of triangle ACD = 1/2 x DF x AC
= 1/2 x 8 x 24  = 96 square meter
The total area of a quadrilateral shaped field = 156 + 96 = 252 square meter.
Hence, the answer is (1) 252 square meter.
