Please do not use all capital letters. They are hard to read and are considered to be shouting.
Area = length times width
A = 12 * 5
A = ?

nd what about
triangle;b =8 in..,h=11 ??? 
ALGEBRA :)  Cecilia, Tuesday, August 31, 2010 at 10:21pm
its it 44in and the little 2

Yes. The area of the rectangle is 60 square cm.
Area of triangle = 1/2 of the base times the height
A = 1/2 * 8 * 11
A = 44 square units
