I wanted to make sure I am doing it correctly What is the correct geometry term for calculating area based of squares/rectangles in this manner? Your working looks fine. And I think "mensuration" is the word you are looking for.
Or take the full rectangle: 92(40) = 3680 Subtract the 3 "missing" rectangles: 20(16) + 16(8) + 20(16) = 768 3680 - 768 = 2912
