### Example Question #74 : Plane Geometry

Find the area of a rectangle with a length of 16in and a width that is half the length.

Explanation:

To find the area of a rectangle, we will use the following formula:

where l is the length and w is the width of the rectangle.

Now, we know the length of the rectangle is 16in.  We also know the width is half of the length.  Therefore, the width is 8in.

Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get
