The area of a rectangle is 117 square meters. The width is 9 meters. What is the length of the rectangle?

The equation for finding the area of a rectangle is as follows:

Let l = length of the rectangle

Let w = the width of the rectangle

\(A_{\text{rect.}}=lw\)

If you never know how to start a problem, utilizing a formula is probably the way to go. Plug in the known values into the equation and solve for the missing one:

\(117=l*9\) | Solve for the width by dividing by 9 on both sides of the equation |

\(13m=l\) | Of course, don't forget your units of measure! |
