The figure is something wrong. If the triangle is a right angle, the side and hypothenuse cannot be equal, i.e. 12 cm. The hypothenuse is the longest side in a right-angle triangle. If they are equal, it would be an isosceles triangle.

Ok I got the diagram now.

Both 12 x 12 papers are folded and joined at the folded part.

So the figure should be (144-24) x 2 = 240 cm^{2}

Your working only minus “area of one right-angle triangle” when it should be two because both papers are folded, then they can join….otherwise the side 12 cm and hypothenuse(longer than 12 cm) cannot join properly.
