You need a length *and* a width. Then just multiply them to
get the area in square units.

### The area of a rectangle is 70cm if the length of the rectangle is 10 meters then what is the perimeter of the rectangle?

Assume the area of the rectangle is 70 square
centimeters.
Convert the length to centimeters : 1 meter = 100 cm : 10 meters
= 1000 cm
Area of a rectangle = length x width.
70 = 1000 x width : width = 70/1000 = 0.07 cm
Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 (length + width) = 2(1000 + 0.07) =
2 x 1000.07 = 2000.14 cm = 2000.14/100 = 20.0014 meters.
