Problem: If the area is 24 3/4 feet squared and the width is 5 1/2 feet what is the length?

If a rectangle is 24 3/4 ft squared and the width is 5 1/2 feet what is the length?

Area is length times width. You are given the area and the width. Divide

the area by the width to determine the length.

A = L * W

A / W = L

24.75 sq ft / 5.5 ft = 4.5 ft

This shows the length is 4.5 ft, although the longer side (in

this case, 5.5) would generally called the length. However, **the
answer is 4.5 ft.**
