Ms. Sue,
The term "base measurements" can have several different meanings.
How is it used in your problem?

some girl,
trying to find the area of a rectangle

Ms. Sue,
Does your problem tell you how long the base of the rectangle is?

some girl,
5 yards and the width is 3 yards

Ms. Sue,
Ahh  that means the bottom of the rectangle is considered its base.
A = LW  or A = BH
