- base area times height

Find the question below;

This is a textbook question and i noted that their solution of, $$A=\left[\dfrac{1}{2}×3×4×6\right]cm^3$$ is not correct in my opinion as the base is not a right angle. The base can be analysed as a rhombus and the exercise therefore is to find the related angles and sides (possibly use sine and cosine rules). I would appreciate your thoughts on this.
