Area of a Rectangle Formula
`\text(Area )=\text(length) times \text(width)`Identify the known lengths
`\text(length)` (Larger Rectangle)`=22``\text(width)` (Larger Rectangle)`=10``\text(length)` (Smaller Rectangle)`=10``\text(width)` (Smaller Rectangle)`=3010=20`First, solve for the area of the Larger Rectangle using the formula`\text(Area)`_{`\text(Larger Rectangle)`} `=` `\text(length)``times``\text(width)` Area of a Rectangle Formula `=` `10``times``22` Plug in the known values `\text(Area)`_{`\text(Larger Rectangle)`} `=` `220 \text(cm)^2` Next, solve for the area of the Smaller Rectangle using the formula`\text(Area)`_{`\text(Smaller Rectangle)`} `=` `\text(length)``times``\text(width)` Area of a Rectangle Formula `=` `10``times``20` Plug in the known values `\text(Area)`_{`\text(Smaller Rectangle)`} `=` `200 \text(cm)^2` Finally, get the final area by adding the area of the
Smaller Rectangle to the area of the Larger Rectangle$$\text{Total Area}$$ `=` `220``+``200` Plug in the known values `=` `420 \text(cm)^2` The given measurements are in centimetres, so the area is measured as square centimetres`\text(Area)=420 \text(cm)^2`
