A frame 2 inches wide is placed around a rectangular picture with dimensions 8 inches by 12 inches. What is the area of the frame, in square inches?

A. 44
B. 96
C. 128
D. 144
E. 168



total area of picture + frame = 12+2+2 * 8+2+2 = 16*12 = 192
and picture area = 12*8= 96
so area of fram = 192-96 = 96 IMO B

Area of photo=8*12=96
Area of photo+frame= (8+2+2)*(12+2+2)=12*16=192

Hence area of frame= 192-96=96
