find area bounded by three linear functions

How can I get Mathematica to find the area of the region bounded by all 
three of the following linear functions?  I have tried searching and can't 
find it.  What do I search for to find the commands to accomplish this?  I 
calculated by hand and come up with about 3.1623 sq. units for area above 
the x-axis and 8.8378 sq. units below it.  The total area for the scalene 
triangle formed is 12 square units by my calculations using Heron's formula.

X=3Y;  X+Y=0;   7X + 3Y =24

Thanks,

T Harris
