Area of a rectangle specifies an area in the coordinate space that is enclosed by the rectangular object. To find the area of a rectangle, multiply the length and the width. Area is usually measured in square units such as square inches, square feet or square meters.In the above figure, the length of the rectangle is "l" and the width of the rectangle is "w". Therefore, the area of the rectangle formula is (l X w) square units.
