Math Challenge October 19

The original Star-Spangled Banner measured 30 feet by 42 feet when it
was created in 1813. In the 1800s, a few people were given pieces of the
flag as momentoes. Some of the flag was lost due to wear and tear through use. Today, the flag measures 30 X 34 feet.

What was the area of the original flag? What is the area of the flag today?

Good Luck!
