**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, September 15, 2007 at 4:26pmYour first answer is correct. 20 * 10 = 200 square centimeters.

The second answer is not correct. The height is 14 inches and the base is 20 inches. The formula is A = b * h

**Jamie**, Saturday, September 15, 2007 at 4:33pmI don't know how I got 68. Would this be correct: a= 280in squared? Or am I still off?

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, September 15, 2007 at 4:44pmI'm going to pass on the post I haven't answered. I'm a little confused about the directions, but perhaps another teacher can help you out.
