the question asks me to find the area in square inches of section A
section A is a triangle.

so area of a triangle =12(bh)

base= 7 inches
h=7 inches

=12(49)
=14.42


the area of the section A=24.52

is it correct?

> is it correct?
Yes, the area is 24.5in2
It has to be assumed that the wrong 14.4 in your calculaton are due to a series of typos

>492=24.52

Units do not just fall from the sky!

You may write
49in22=24.5in2
or
7in7in2=24.5in2
or you may simply write
492=24.5
and just mention the unit in your written answer.

The deeper reason for my complaint is the use of the equal sign. The unitless number 24.5 is not the same as the area 24.5in2.

BTW, try to type a space between "i" and "n" to avoid this forum software to turn an "in" into the "element of" character if used immediately after a number.
