The area of a rectangle can be found by multiplying the base times the height.

A = lw

Examples:

If a rectangle has a base of length 6 inches and a height of 4 inches, its area is:

A = 6 * 4 = 24 square inches

Find the area of a rectangular field 45 m long and 38 m wide.

A = lw

A = 45 * 38 = 1710 m˛
