How many sides does a rectangle have?
The area of a rectangle is the length multiplied by the width. Length and width are measured in meters, centimeters, or millimeters. To find the area, multiply the two measurements together.
Area of a Rectangle in Metric Measurements
What is the best way to measure the area of a rectangle in metric measurements?
- Using the formula A = l * w
- Using a ruler to measure the length and width of the rectangle
- Using a calculator to calculate the area
- Using a protractor to measure the angles of the rectangle
The area of a rectangle can be calculated by multiplying the length by the width, and the area of a square can be calculated by squaring the length of any side! The area of a 3-dimensional rectangle is measured in cubic meters, while the area of a 3-dimensional square is measured in cubic centimeters. The area of a rectangle is equal to the area of a circle with the same length and width of the rectangle.
