The shaded area is a trapezoid with two "bases" of lengths 14 and 6 centimeters and height 10 centimeters. The area of such a trapezoid is the "average" of the two bases, (14+ 6)/2= 10 centimeters, and the height, 10 centimeters. The area is 100 square centimeters.

The area of shaded part to area of the rectangle minus area of triangle. Area of the rectangle is 140cm squared from 10cm (width) *14cm (length). Area of the triangle is 1/2*(14cm-8cm)*10cm= 40cmsquared.
Therefore the area of the shaded part is 140cmsquared-40cmsquared=100 cm squared
