## Question

# What is the formula for the area of a rectangle?

With four sides and four corners, a rectangle is a closed two-dimensional figure in geometry. In a rectangle, the lengths of its opposite sides are equal and parallel to each other. Also, the angle formed by its adjacent sides is 90°.

## Answer: The formula for the area of a rectangle is length × width or l × w.

Let's understand the formula for the area of a rectangle in detail.

**Explanation:**

We know that the area of a rectangle can be express as the number of squares unit can fit into a rectangle.

The area of a rectangle can be calculated by the product of its length and width.

Therefore, the formula for the area of a rectangle = l × w

where,

l = Length

w = Width

### Hence, the formula for the area of a rectangle is Length × Width or l × w.
