What is the base area if a box with a base of 8 inches and a height of 13 inches?

The question is very poorly phrased. It mentions "a base of 8 inches". A base cannot be 8 inches - it can be 8 inches long, or 8 inches wide, or have an area of 8 square inches. If it is either of the first two, the question cannot be answered since the base area requires BOTH, the length and the width, to be known. If it is the third, then the question is redundant because the answer is included in the question. Information about the height is irrelevant.
