Example Question #1 : Geometry
What is the area of the rectangle?
The formula to find area is .
We are given the length and the width from the problem, so we can plug those values into our equation and solve.
*Area is the number of square units inside a shape, which is why area is always written with square units.
Example Question #2 : Geometry
What is the area of the figure below?
To find the area of the figure above, we need to slip the figure into two rectangles.
Using our area formula, , we can solve for the area of both of our rectangles
To find our final answer, we need to add the areas together.
