Lesson Excerpt

The area of a shape is how many square units fit within it. The area is different then the perimeter. The perimeter measures the length around a figure. The area measures the space within the figure.

Finding the area in an object is not difficult if you know how to multiply. You will also need to know what length and width are.

The length of a figure is the distance from left to right. The top and bottom lines of a square measure the length. This line is usually horizontal.

The width of a figure is the distance from the top to the bottom. In a square, the width is measured by the line that connects the top line to the bottom line. This line is usually vertical.

The equation for determining the area is:
L (length) x W (width)
