# How do you find an area to a rectangle in square meters, given the length is 1.4 m and the width of 2.9?

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The formula for the area of a rectangle is:

$A = l \times w$ where:

• $A$ is the area of the rectangle: what we are solving for in this problem

• $l$ is the length of the rectangle: $1.4 \text{m}$ for this problem

• $w$ is the width of the rectangle: $2.9 \text{m}$
Note: assuming the unit for the width is also meters.

Substituting and calculating the Area gives:

$A = 1.4 \text{m" xx 2.9"m}$

$A = 4.06 {\text{m}}^{2}$
