    The number you gave is for surface area. So.. The way you do this is add up the areas of each side. so there are 6 sides, 3 of them are different because one side is the same as the other side opposite it. So the first side is 5 feet and 12 feet which is 60 square feet, double that because there are two sides with those dimensions and you have 120 feet.
