**Rectangle = Flat Shape with Four Sides (with four right angles)**

Basics

l = Length

w = Width

P = Perimeter = distance along sides of rectangle

A = Area = area covering surface of rectangle (measured in square units)

Right Angle = 90°

A rectangle has four right angles.

The opposite sides of a rectangle are parallel.

A rectangle is a special form of a parallelogram in which all angles are right angles.

Formulas (provided by ** Mathematics Formula Sheet**)

P = 2l + 2w

A = lw

Formulas (NOT provided by ** Mathematics Formula Sheet**)

l = A ÷ w

w = A ÷ l
