    I'm not sure I understand the question. What has a height of 10 in and a base of 12 in?

    The area of the triangle taken out is 1/2 bh so the area of the triangle is 1/2 (4)(6) = 12 square inches.

    Squares would have to have all the sides be the same. If it's a rectangle than it would have an area of base times height so it would be 120 square inches.

    If you take the area of the triangle out of the area of the rectangle you would get 120 - 12 or just 108 square inches.
