    area is base times height. 12x12=144

    then your are will be height*base height=12 base=12 so 12*12=144

    |dw:1327669457323:dw|no we have to take height and it's corresponding base, if we were given say horizontal distance x from side 13 then Area = 13 *x . Here we have height 12 and base also 12 so 12*12=144
