# The area of the rectangle is 9.464 dm2. the width of the rectangle is 2.6 dm. what is the length

The area of the rectangle is 9.464 dm2. the width of the rectangle is 2.6 dm. what is the length of the rectangle and how many times is it wider?

A rectangle is a rectangle whose opposite sides are equal. The area of such a figure is calculated by the formula:

S = a * b. According to the terms of the assignment, the width of such a figure = 2.6 dm2, and the area = 9.464 dm². Let’s find the length that corresponds to the quotient of the product and the second factor:

a = S: b = 9.464: 2.6 = 3.64 dm.

Let’s perform the division and find out how many times one side is larger than the other:

3.64: 2.6 = 1.4 times. One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society.
