    First you need to check whether your DB really bisects AC. (I don't think it does). Then you can proceed via the areas of the right angled triangles AOB and ODB to find the area of half the quadrilateral.

    It is a perpendicular bisector doesn't that mean it does? That is also how I found the points I had to find.

    Is the point at which your DB crosses AC half way between A and C?

    Did you even read the question?

    The perpendicular bisector of the line joining A (0,1) and C (4,-7) intersects the x-axis at B and y-axis at D. Find the area of the quadrilateral ABCD
