Can you now finish the problem ..........

The area of the Triangle =$\frac{1}{2} \times \{x_1(y_2 - y_3)+x_2(y+3 -y_1)+x_3(y_1 -y_2)\}$

can you finish the problem........

Solving two The lines y=5 and y=1+x are intersect at (4,5)=$(x_1,y_1)$(say)

Solving two The lines y=5 and y=1-x are intersect at (-4,5)=$(x_2,y_2)$(say)

Solving two The lines y=1-x and y=1+x are intersect at (0,1)=$(x_1,y_1)$(say)

Then the area of Triangle =$\frac{1}{2} \times\{ x_1(y_2 - y_3)+x_2(y+3 -y_1)+x_3(y_1 -y_2)\}$

= $\frac{1}{2} \times \{4(5-1)+(-4)(1-5)+0(5-5)=\frac{1}{2} (16+16)=16\}$
