The area of a rectangle can be determined by multiplying the width times the height.
W x H = AREA (The area is always shown in SQUARE UNITS)
If a rectangle has a base (or width) 10 inches and a height of 6 inches, its area is 10 x 6 = 60 square inches.
See example 2 of finding a measured kitchen area on a floor plan ------->
1. Find the measurement of the width of the rectangle (13' or 13 feet).
2. Find the height of the rectangle (18' or 18 feet).
3. To find the area of a rectangle multiply the base times the height.
13' x 18' = 234 Square Feet or 234 Sq. Ft.See also: Find the Circumference of a Circle
