base times height example: A square with the base and height of 12, the area would be 144 because 12 * 12 = 144
the length and width that is the formula
base times height is area
base times height = area
Multiply the base by the height !
Base * vertical height.
by finding the area of the base (ex if a square its side times side) and then multiplying that product by the height :D
Area in square units = 0.5*base*height
Area= base x height
It depends on what information you have.
