We can work out the area of a rectangle without the grid. length width Area = length x width

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

Now work out the area of these rectangles. They are not drawn to scale. 36cm 2 35cm 2 20cm 2 25cm 2 4cm 9cm 7cm 5cm 4cm 2cm 12.5cm
