Answer

$T=1625$ square centimeters.

Work Step by Step

The area of this figure can be calculated by taking the area of the large rectangle, substracting the area of the little rectangle. The area of a rectangle can be calculated by: $T=a\times b$ where a and b are the lengths of the perpendicular sides. Here, the large rectangle: $T_1=30\times 60=1800$ square centimeters The little rectangle: $T_2=35\times5 = 175$ square centimeters. The area of the figure: $T=T_1-T_2=1800-175=1625$ square centimeters
