By joining B to D, you will get two triangle ABD and BCD.

Now          the area of Delta ABD=frac {1}{2}left [ -5(-5-5)+(-4)(5-7)+4(7+5) right ]

                                                  =frac {1}{2}(50+8+48)=frac {106}{2}=53   square units

Also,     the area of  Delta BCD=frac {1}{2}left [ -4(-6-5)-1(5+5)+4(-5+6) right ]

                                               =frac {1}{2}(44-10+4)=19  square units

So, the area of quadrilateral  ABCD=53+19=72   square units.
