# RECTANGLE AREA CALCULATOR

Rectangle area calculator provided on this web page is a tool which can be used  to find the area of the rectangle for the given length and width.

## Why do people need this calculator?

When people want to find the area of the rectangle, they can use the formula "lxw" and find the area for the given length and width. But the problem that the students have is, "how to write the units". If both  length and width are given in inches, then the area of the rectangle would be square inches. If both length and width are given in feet, the answer would be in square feet.

When length is given in one unit and width is given different unit, students get confused to find the area. Our rectangular area calculator will give you the area of the rectangle even if we give length and width in different units. That is, if we give the length in feet and width in inches, it will calculate the area of the rectangle in four kinds of units. They are acres, square yards, square feet, square inches.

## Using the calculator in solving word problems

That is, they find the area of the rectangle in the above problem is 150 square inches. Then, they convert square inches in to square feet. The second way of solving is, students will convert inches in to feet even before finding the area. After having converted inches in to feet , they will find the area of the rectangle.
