This is the situation. Area is the sum of all sides: There are 2 walls that are 8 ft high and 12 ft wide: 2 * 8*12 Two walls that are 8 ft high and 15 ft long: 2 * 8 * 15 One ceiling that is 15 ft long and 12 ft wide: 15 * 12 So to get total area we sum all these to get $$\text{Area = }2\times8\times 12+2\times 8\times 15+15\times 12$$ Is that what you did?
