The lengths of the sides of the rectangle are 9cm and 8cm. How many squares with a side of 2 cm fit in this rectangle.

First of all, you need to calculate the area of a rectangle whose sides are equal to 9 cm and 8 cm:

S = 9 * 8 = 72 (cm²).

Now let’s calculate the area of the square into which this rectangle should be divided:

S = 2² = 4 (cm²).

Find the number of squares into which the rectangle can be divided by dividing the area of the rectangle by the area of the square:

72: 4 = 18.

Answer: 18 squares fit.
