**How to find the area and perimeter of a rectangle?**

To find the area and perimeter of a rectangle we need to know the values of the length and width of that rectangle and put these values in the formula of area and perimeter of a rectangle.

Area of Rectangle = Length✕Width

And the perimeter of the Rectangle = 2✕(Length+Width)

Let us take an example:

If the length and width of a rectangle are 20cm and 10cm long respectively. So find its area and perimeter.

Solve:

Area of a rectangle = L✕W

= L✕W

= 20cm✕10cm

= 200 sq. cm

Perimeter of a rectangle = 2✕(L+W)

= 2✕(L+W)

= 2✕(20cm+10cm)

= 2✕30

= 60 cm.
