**To work out the number of squares**

The rectangle is made of 6 rows of 8 squares. To work out the number of squares we times 6 by 8. Counting each square can take a long time. Does anyone know a quicker way? The area of the shape is 48cm2.

**We can work out the area of a rectangle**

without the grid. length Area = length x width width

5
3 x 6 = 18cm2 4 x 5 =20cm2 What is the area of each of these shapes? Check each answer by left clicking. 5 x 6 = 30cm2 7 x 2 = 14cm2 2 x 11 = 22cm2

**Now work out the area of these rectangles.**

They are not drawn to scale. 7cm 5cm 35cm2 5cm 20cm2 4cm 9cm 36cm2 12.5cm 4cm 2cm 25cm2
