How do you figure out the area of a rectangle if it is 2.3 time less than the total area
Area is a measure of how much space there is inside a shape.
The simplest (and most commonly used) area calculations are for squares and rectangles. To find the area of a rectangle multiply its height by its width. For a square you only need to find the length of one of the sides (as each side is the same length) and then multiply this by itself to find the area. This is the same as saying length2 or length squared. It is good practice to check that a shape is actually a square by measuring two sides. For example the wall of a room may look like a square but when you measure it you find it is actually a rectangle.
