| 1. According to the problem statement, the length of one side of the square is 6 cm.

2. Let’s define what is the area of this square. In order to calculate the area, you need to find the product of the two sides of the square. So, let’s write the solution:

6 * 6 = 36 cm ^ 2.

3. And now let us determine what the area of one of the triangles will be if we also know from the data presented in the problem statement that the square was divided into 2 equal rectangles. We get:

36/2 = 18 cm ^ 2.

Answer: The area of the rectangle is 18 cm ^ 2.
