    Default Content or contented?

    Dear teachers!
    In the 10th grade E textbook of VN
    (*) Although it is a long day for us, we are contented with what we do.
    and in some exercises, contented with is also used.
    According to the OALD
    content (adj) [not before noun] content (with something)
    content - Definition and pronunciation | Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary at OxfordLearnersDictionaries.com

    contented (adj) [usually before noun]
    contented - Definition and pronunciation | Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary at OxfordLearnersDictionaries.com
    (There is no "contented with sth")
    I am wondering whether (*) is all right.

    Not really. Did you read the full entries?
