| To solve this problem, recall the formula for the area of a rectangle. The area of the rectangle is equal to the product of the length and the width. S = a * b, where a is the length and b is the width. Let’s calculate what the second side of the rectangle is, knowing that it is 2 cm larger than the second.

3 + 2 = 5 centimeters.

We calculate the area of a rectangle with sides of 5 cm and 3 cm.

S = 5 * 3 = 15 sq. Cm.

Answer: 15 sq. Cm.
