Your 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

I don't know how I got 68. Would this be correct: a= 280in squared? Or am I still off?

You've got it now. The area of the parallelogram is 280 square inches.
