Problem

The rectangle shown has length $AC=32$, width $AE=20$, and $B$ and $F$ are midpoints of $\overline{AC}$ and $\overline{AE}$, respectively. The area of quadrilateral $ABDF$ is

[asy] pair A,B,C,D,EE,F; A = (0,20); B = (16,20); C = (32,20); D = (32,0); EE = (0,0); F = (0,10); draw(A--C--D--EE--cycle); draw(B--D--F); dot(A); dot(B); dot(C); dot(D); dot(EE); dot(F); label("$A$",A,NW); label("$B$",B,N); label("$C$",C,NE); label("$D$",D,SE); label("$E$",EE,SW); label("$F$",F,W); [/asy]

$\text{(A)}\ 320 \qquad \text{(B)}\ 325 \qquad \text{(C)}\ 330 \qquad \text{(D)}\ 335 \qquad \text{(E)}\ 340$
