In the figure above, all intersecting sides of the polygon meet at right angles. What is the area of the polygon?

A.     108

B.     104

C.     102

D.     98

E.     96

My approach is to close the rectangle (12X9=108 units) and then subtract two small rectangles. One is  2X2 and the other is 2X3 or 4 and 6 units that are taken out – giving 98 units.
