    I don't know what it is supposed to look like either. What grid? If your figures can be of any shape, then you can simply draw a rectangle with a width of, say, 1.5 units and a length of 5 units. Or some other variation.

    Hello, Kha!

    Draw two diffrent figures y and z, each with an area of 7\frac{1}{2} square units.

    Are you sure that this is the entire problem?
    Code:
          *
          |  *
        3 |     *
          |   y    *
          *-----------*
                5
    
    
            1
          *---*
          |     *
          |       *
        3 |         *
          |     z     *
          |             *
          *---------------*
