WALT find the area of rectangles

Yesterday we foundthe area of shapes by counting squares.

But what happens when we don't have sqaures to count?

If we use the formula area = length x width we can find the area of rectaular shapes.

If the length of a rectangle was 10 cm and the width was 5 cm we would calculate the area as

L x W = Area

10 x 5 = 50 cm2.
