This figure is a combination of rectangles, so there're lots of ways to solve it, the objetive is to find out the faster one.
The faster that i've thought in, is to divide the figure in 3 rectangles which sides are a combination of a 2 digit number easy to multiply and a 1 digit number.

As we can see, the first rectangle is 3 x 11, the second one 4 x 11 and the last one 3 x 17.

Thus we have 33+44+51 that is equal to 128.

Answer: C
