Determine the summer R-value and the U-factor of a wood frame wall that is built around 38-mm

Question:

Determine the summer R-value and the U-factor of a wood frame wall that is built around 38-mm × 140-mm wood studs with a center-to-center distance of 400 mm. The 140-mm-wide cavity between the studs is filled with mineral fiber batt insulation. The inside is finished with 13-mm gypsum wallboard and the outside with 13-mm wood fiberboard and 13-mm × 200-mm wood bevel lapped siding. The insulated cavity constitutes 80 percent of the heat transmission area, while the studs, headers, plates, and sills constitute 20 percent.
