The area of a rectangle is the product of its length and width. In other words, it is the amount of space inside the rectangle's boundaries. To calculate the area of a rectangle, you simply need to multiply its length by its width. The resulting value will be in square units, such as square inches or square meters. The formula for calculating the area of a rectangle is:

Area = length x width

For example, if a rectangle has a length of 6 meters and a width of 4 meters, its area would be:

Area = 6 meters x 4 meters = 24 square meters

Therefore, the area of the rectangle is 24 square meters.

The formula for determining the area of a rectangle is defined as:

\(A\) \(=\) \(L\) \(\cdot\) \(W\)

\(A\): the area of the rectangle

\(L\): the length of the longer side

\(W\): the length of the shorter side

The SI unit of area is: \(square \text{ } meter\text{ }(m^2)\)

## Find \(A\)
