Have you ever wondered how much paint you need for the living room wall, or what size carpet fits perfectly in your room? Being able to calculate the area of a rectangle is a practical skill that can save you time and money in everyday life.

Knowing how to calculate the area of a rectangle is useful in a variety of situations:

**Renovation:**Are you going to lay new flooring or paint a wall? By knowing the area, you can purchase the right amount of materials.**Gardening:**Are you planning a new patio or laying sod? Area calculation helps you estimate costs and material needs.**Interior Design:**When buying carpets, furniture, or other decor, knowing the area ensures that everything fits as it should.

Calculating the area of a rectangle is simple and requires only two measurements:

1.**Measure the length** of one side of the rectangle.

2. **Measure the width** of the adjacent side.

3. **Use the formula:**

Area = Length × Width

Let's say you have a room that is 5 meters long and 4 meters wide.

**Length** = 5 meters **Width** = 4 meters **Area** = 5 m × 4 m = 20 m²

This means your room is 20 square meters in size.
