The length of a rectangle is twice its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is , find its area.

Area = (length) times (width)Length = (area) divided by (width)Width = (area) divided by (length)

For a rectangle, area equals length times width. To find the length given the width and area, divide the area by the width.

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.

If the length of a rectangle is twice its width and it has a perimeter of 48, then the rectangle is 16 in length and 8 in width.

AREA = LENGTH x WIDTH LENGTH = 2 X WIDTH AREA = 2 x WIDTH X WIDTH = 900 900/2 = WIDTH X WIDTH 450 = WIDTH X WIDTH = WIDTH SQUARED WIDTH = SQUARE ROOT (450) = 21.21 FEET LENGTH = 42.42 FEET

Find the width, and multiply the length and the width.

First find the dimensions of the rectangle. Let its length be 2x and its width be x: 2(2x+x) = 60 4x+2x = 60 6x = 60 x = 10 Therefore: length = 20cm and the width = 10cm Area = length*width Area = 200cm2

For a rectangle or square, Area = Length * Width So Length = Area / Width.

Area = width x length in order to find width you need to know length

You just multipy the length (no matter what it is) by the width (no matter what that is). So... L x W = A Where L is Length, W is Width and A is Area. For your question about the area of a rectangle where the length is twice the width but no numbers are given then I guess a formula could be W x 2W = A. Or send me the exact question and I'll see if I can think of a better answer.

the area of a rectangle = length x widthwe can rearrange this to give uslength of a rectangle = area/ width

If you are trying to find the width of a rectangle with length and area then divide the area by the length. A=LxW. Simply divide both sides of the equation by the length and you'll have the width. W=A/L

Divide area by lengthA/L = W(area x length = 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.
