The area is $144 {\text{in}}^{2}$.

#### Explanation:

Area of a rectangle can be found using this formula: ( Length $\times$ Width )

Convert the units to the same unit,

Width$= 2 \times 12$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\times \times} = 24 \text{in}$

Apply formula,

Area$= 24 \times 6$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\times x} = 144 {\text{in}}^{2}$
