I need help on these. Thanks very much.

1. Assume there are seven squares in a surface such that square 1, 3, 5, 7 are placed on the flat form while square 2, 4, and 6 are placed on an inclined position. If the area of square 2 is a, square 4 is b, and square 6 is c, what is the area of the sum of square 1 and 7?
