#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be finding the areas of rectangles in cm².

Example

Find the area of the rectangle below with a length of 12 cm and width of 11 cm.

The area of a rectangle = the length x the width

We multiply together the length by the width.

12 cm × 11 cm = 132 cm²

Don't forget to put the units of measurement!

When calculating area, the answer will be in squared units, for example cm2.
