Can you write down expressions for the length and width of each rectangle?

Can you then multiply these to get expressions for the areas of the rectangles?

Can you then form an equation that says the sum of these areas is equal to the total area of the shape?

Let us know how far you get with those steps.

Post your working so we can check for errors.

As Plucker says, work out the separate areas and add, and set the total equal to 44 to form the equation.

(I wish the side labelling was a bit clearer - that x+1 corresponds to the length of BC and not AF!)
