How to Find Area, Perimeter and Diagonal of Rectangle?
The area of a rectangle is the area occupied by the boundary of a square. It is measured in square units. The formula to calculate the area of a rectangle is given by:
Area of the rectangle = (length × width) square units
The perimeter of a rectangle is defined as the total length or distance of its boundary on all sides. As opposite sides are equal. The formula to calculate the perimeter of a rectangle is:
Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(Length + width) units
Diagonal of a rectangle: In a rectangle, the lengths of opposite sides are equal. The length of a diagonal is calculated by the Pythagoras theorem.
Diagonal of a rectangle = √( l^{2} + w^{2})
Solved Examples on Rectangle Calculator

Example1:
Find the area of a rectangle whose side length is 7 units and whose width is 6 units.
Solution:
Given: Length = 7 and width = 6units
The formula for the area of a rectangle is:
Area = length × width
= 7 × 6
= 42 square units

Example2:
Find the perimeter of a rectangle whose length is 5 units and whose width is 6 units
Solution:
Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(length + width)= 2(5 + 6)
= 22 units.

Example3:
Find the diagonal of a rectangle whose length is 6 units and whose width is 7 unitsSolution:
Diagonal of a rectangle = √( l^{2} + w^{2})
= √6^{2}^{} × 7^{2}
= 9.21 units.
Similarly, you can use the calculator to find the area, perimeter, and diagonal of a rectangle for the following:
 Length = 16 units and width = 17 units
 Length = 9 units and width = 5 units
