    The blue angles are the interior angles of the two pentagons. You can find the red angles because it's a parallelogram where opposite angles are equal, and all of these add up to 360. Black angle + red angle should make up the interior angle of the regular pentagon, thus allowing you to find angle AEH.

    Why did you mark blue angles 180? Wouldn't make sense for two angles to add up to 360 with a quadtrilateral. Blue angles are the interior angles of the pentagon's if you can see it.

    Is it 90?

    Those two angles can't be 180 - 180 degrees is a straight line and also all four angles within the quadrilateral must add up to 360 degrees therefore it's impossible to have two angles at 180 degrees.

    Correct, now you can find the black angle which is the one you need.

    Yeah that's the interior angle of the pentagon, the red and the black angles make up one interior angle and you know the red angle, so you can take one away from the other and get your black angle.

    Yep.
    Is this 28*14

    Find the area of the semi circles and subtract them from the original answer?

    That's the correct method but trapezium's area is not quite right. Recall your trapezium area to be \frac{1}{2}(a+b)\cdot h

    Also I'd like to just say that if you're a visual learner, and colours help you identify different important things in a question such as that double pentagon one there, then I'd suggest you use them in the future. I believe you can also use them in the exam but ask your teacher just to be sure.
