Answer:58 unitsStep-by-step explanation:I decided that one side is 37 units and another is 2 units, since that would make the area 37 units. (you can also use 74 units and 1 unit)

Then I multiplied 37 by 5/4, which equals a new length of 46.25 units, and I also multiplied 2 by 5/4, which equals a new length of 2.5 units.

Finally, I solve for the area of the triangle:

1/2(46.25 x 2.5) ≈

58 units(rounded to the nearest whole number)
