Learning about Area. The space occupied by a shape is called its area. Let us find area of this rectangle. To find its area, we need to find how many unit squares can fit in this rectangle. A unit square is a square where each side is equal to 1 unit. Looks like nobody is at home. Go play somewhere else. Let us find the area of a rectangle. In this rectangle, we can fit 4 rows of 2 squares each. Thus, its Area is equal to 4 into 2. Is equal to 8 unit squares. Here, 4 is length, 2 is the breadth. Thus, area is equal to 4 into 2. Is equal to Length into Breadth. Let us find area of a square. In this square, we can fit 2 rows of 2 squares each. Thus, Area is equal to 2 into 2. Is equal to 4 unit squares. Here, 2 is the length of each side. Thus, Area is equal to 2 into 2. Is equal to Side into Side. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. The End.
