How to find the area of a rectangle with fractional sides?

Answered by administrator @



You would find the Area the same way as if they were whole numbers.
Area = Length x Width

If the fractions are mixed numbers, then convert them to improper fractions.

Example: Length =  \frac{1}{2} , Width = 1  \frac{2}{3}

Area =  \frac{1}{2} x 1  \frac{2}{3}
         =  \frac{1}{2} x  \frac{5}{3}
         =  \frac{5}{6}

Hope this heps!
