$A = 128 {\text{ inches}}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

Think about the length and width as being the number of rows and columns in a rectangle.

The area is the amount of flat space inside the rectangle, measured in inches squared.

$\text{Area = length x breadth}$ $A = l \times b$

$A = 16 \times 8$

$A = 128 {\text{ inches}}^{2}$
