Jack unfolded a cardboard box. The figure of the unfolded box is shown below:

A long rectangle divided along the length into 4 equal squares is shown. Along the upper edge length of the second square is shown another square, and along the lower edge length of the fourth square is shown another square. The first square from the left has two adjacent sides labeled as 8 inches each.

Which expression can be used to calculate the area of cardboard, in square inches, that was used to make the box?

Each square is 8 x 8 so then mutltiply that by the number of squares 8x8 = 64 then multiply it by 6

If I'm reading this right, then there are 6 squares of cardboard, all of equal area. They have side length of 8, so 8 * 8 * 6 = 384. I might have gotten this wrong, for it's hard to do without a picture.


Hope this helps!
