# How to find the length of a rectangle when given the area?

## Question: How to find the length of a rectangle when area is given

The amount of surface enclosed by the rectangle is known as it's area

## Answer: To find the length of a rectangle when area is given, the width should also be known

Area of a rectangle = length × width

=> Length = Area of the rectangle / width

We need atleast 2 variables (Area, width) to find the unknown variable length

### Hence, to find the length of a rectangle when area is given, the width should also be known
