**What is Rectangle?**

A rectangle is a four sided polygon and the length of the opposite sides are equal. It can also be described or termed as an equiangular quadrilateral since all of its angles are equal (360°/4 = 90°).

It can also be defined as a parallelogram containing opposite sides equal and parallel in it. A rectangle with four sides of equal length is a square.

**What is Area of Rectangle?**

The size of any object or something can be measured in many different ways. For instance, we all normally calculate how tall the building or the size of a swimming pool how deep it is.

Well, what is the area of a rectangular object, how to find out the area of rectangular? The area of a rectangle is calculated in units by multiplying the width by the height of the rectangle. The **formula for rectangle** of area is mentioned below:

### Area or Rectangle (A) = Length x Breadth

The area of a rectangle is calculated in the usual way once the width and height are found. Once the width and height are known the area is found, multiply the width by the height in the usual way to find out the area of rectangle.

For example: find the area of the rectangle whose length is 15 cm and width is 4 cm ?

Given,

Length = 15 cm

Width = 4 cm

**Area of a rectangle = Length × Breadth**

= 15 × 4 = 60

So The area of rectangle = 60 cm^{2}
