Area by Neve

In class we have been learning

about area.area-of-rectangle

We have learned how to find the area of rectangles and  right angle triangles.


To find the area of a rectangle or a square you need to times the length   by the width.

For example, if I had a rectangle which length was 6cm  and its width was 3cm I would do the sum.                        6cm                                                                                                                                             x 3cm                                                                                                                                            =18cm2

But when you have got your answer you need to remember a little sign which is a little 2 and that represents squared  which means the number has been timed by its self.
