# How do you figure out the area of a rectangle?

A rectangle is a four sided-polygon, which has equal opposite sides and 4 interior right angles.

## Answer: To find the area of a rectangle, we multiply the length of the rectangle by the width of the rectangle.

Let us consider an example.

**Explanation:**

Use the formula mentioned below to find the area of a rectangle.

- area of a rectangle = length × breadth

Find the area of a rectangle that has a breadth of 3 units and a length of 5 units.

The area of the rectangle = length × breadth = 5 × 3

So, the area of the rectangle = 15 square units
