Area = (length) times (width)

Length = (area) divided by (width)

Width = (area) divided by (length)

## Related Questions Find the width, and multiply the length and the width. For a rectangle, area equals length times width. To find the length given the width and area, divide the area by the width.  If the area is already given, there should also be either width or length given. Do the area, divided by the length or the width. For example, the area divided by the width equal the length. Hope it helps.   the area of a rectangle = length x widthwe can rearrange this to give uslength of a rectangle = area/ width Divide the area by the length will give you the width That will depend on the information given as for example if you are given its width and area then in order to find its length divide the width into the area. i think you find the square root of the area. that's the length and the width, so you multiply it.  Length (L) equals area (A) divided by width (W); or L = A / W. If you are given the width and the perimeter, then figure out what the length is then calculate the area... hope this helps :)  It not possible you nit witt that is not true length x width = area If you know length and area, solve width width = area / length then 2 x length + 2 x width = perimeter   By forming a quadratic equation from the information given and then the length and width can be found by solving the equation. To find the relationship in width and area you can use the formula area/length = width. To find the area of a room you multiple the length by the width. take area and divide by length. this will give you width. take 2times width plus 2 times length and that is the perimeter You can't. There are an infinite number of possible rectangles with a given area.    For a rectangle or square, Area = Length * Width So Length = Area / Width.
