# A Rectangular Figure

This figure is an example of a composite figure. A *composite figure* is a figure that can be broken into two or more basic figures. It is composed of basic figures and can be decomposed into basic figures.

- Find the area of this composite figure.

## Hint:

- Can you decompose the composite figure into basic figures that you already know how to find the area of?
- Or, can you draw a familiar figure around the composite figure and use subtraction to find the area of the composite figure?
