Question:

A
832 sq. ft.

explanation

Area of front wall = 40 × 8 = 320 sq. ft.

We multiply this by 2 since the front and back walls are the same.

320 × 2 = 640 sq. ft.

Area of side\u00A0wall = 8 × 12 = 96 sq. ft.

We multiply this by 2 since the front and back walls are the same.

96 × 2 = 192 sq. ft.

Total area of walls = 640\u00A0 + 192 = 832\u00A0sq. ft.
