In this question, the answer given in the big book is B which is 256. But technically the answer should be 96.

My Solving:

2(l+b)=40

2(l+8)=40

l=12

Area=(12*8)=96

There is limited information but is this a quantatative comparison question? Often times, when there are two values given, in this case βThe area of Rβ and β256β, the answer choices are denoting their relationships.

a) A is greater

b) B is greater

c) A & B are equal

d) Not enough information to determine

If it is a question like this, then the answer would be βBβ because 256 is greater than the area of R that you found to be 96. It seems like to me your work is correct but double check what the questions in the sections are actually asking.
