## Rectangle Definition

In Mathematics, Rectangle is a **two-dimensional** figure with **equal** lengths of opposite sides. This figure has **four** sides in total due to which it is also **called** a quadrilateral with** regular** sides. In simple words, the **two sides** of a rectangle have the same lengths which **means** it has overall two different measurements for its **sides**.

All angles in the rectangle are **90 degrees** i.e sides are perpendicular to **each** other. Simply, we can **say** that a shape with opposite sides of **equal** measures and all angles of **90 degrees** is called a rectangle. Like other **figures**, we can also find the area of rectangle as it covers a specific **region**. Here we are going to **discuss** it in the detail.

### Area of Rectangle

As a **rectangle** is a flat figure, it means that it covers a **specific** region. The region that a figure **covers** is called its area. So, the area of a rectangle is the flat **surface** or region that comes **under** the boundaries of the **sides** of a rectangle.

The **process** to find the area of a rectangle is **simple** because of its regular **shape**. It can be found by using a simple formula that we will **discuss** later.

### Area of Rectangle Formula

Being two-dimensional, a rectangle has **two** measurements called **length **and width. To find the **area** of a rectangle, we need to multiply the width and **length**. Here is the formula to follow for **finding** the area of a rectangle.

Area of a rectangle = Length x Width (sq. units)

The units of area will always be the **square** of the **concerned **given units for the **individual** measurements. **For example**, if the measurements are given in **meters,** the units of meters will be written as “meter^{2} or m^{2}”. Similarly, we can write units of area **according** to the units of the measurements.

### How to Calculate the Area of Rectangle?

We have discussed the formula earlier to calculate the Area of a rectangle. It is time to learn it properly with the help of an example here. Let’s explore the example to clear the concept.

**Example 1:**

Find the Area of a rectangle having a length of 10 cm and a width of 15 cm.

**Solution:**

As we know,

Area of a Rectangle = Length x Width

= 10 x 15 cm^{2}

= 150 cm^{2}

### FAQ | Area of Rectangle

**How do you find the area of an irregular rectangle? **

A rectangle can’t be irregular as it deviates from the definition of the figure. You can find the area of an irregular shape as per its dimensions.

**What are the rules for finding an area?**

The rules to find the area of any shape depends on its dimensions. To find the area of a rectangle, you have to multiply the width by its length.

**What are the rules about area and perimeter?**

The area of any figure is the region covered by a specific figure like a rectangle or square. But the perimeter is the outline of any shape that surrounds the area.

**Why is it important to measure perimeter and area? **

The measurement of area and perimeter has great importance in the practical field. It is used to solve different problems related to the professional and practical fields.
