Two Wrongs Make A Right?

Geometry Level 2

Nihar and Andrew are trying to find the area of ABC\triangle ABC using the formula

12×base×height.\dfrac{1}{2} \times \text{base} \times \text{height}.

Nihar mistakenly multiplies base ABAB by the height from AA ((instead of C).C). He gets a value of 14.

Andrew mistakenly multiplies base BCBC by the height from CC ((instead of A).A). He gets a value of 56.
