### Example Question #53 : Geometry

Find the area of the rectangle shown above.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the area of a rectangle apply the formula:

The image provides the measurements for both the width and length of the rectangle.

Thus, the solution is:

Tip for mental math: Since you are multiplying times a multiple of ten, you can think of these factors as:

and then tack on one zero to the product because the orginal factors have a total of one zero--which equals a product of .
