Area of a Rectangle Formula

How to calculate the area of a rectangle?

To calculate the area of a rectangle you can simply use the formula A = lw. In the formula “A” is the area. The “l” represents the length and “w” represents the width. To get the area of a rectangle you would multiply the length by the width. So a rectangle that is 10 feet in length and 5 feet in width would have an area of 50^{2} feet.

What does the area of a rectangle mean?

The area of a rectangle is a two dimensional measurement based on the space inside of a rectangle. The unit of measurements that is used to indicate the area are square units eg square metres or square feet. Other units of measurements such as square centimetres can be used for a deeper level of precision but that would depend on the use case.

What is the use for getting an area of a rectangle?

The area of the rectangle can be applied to real world applications. For example a real world use case would be getting the area of a floor plan for a room. In agriculture the area can be calculated to determine the value of a piece of land. The area of a rectangle can also be used in other branches of mathematics such as geometry.
