# The base of a rectangle is 4cm and height $1.2cm$ .What is the area?

The area of the rectangle is $4.8c{m}^{2}$

See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Given information.

Base of the rectangle$b=4cm$

Height of the rectangle$h=1.2cm$ .

## Step 2. Concept  Used.

If b is the base of the reactangle and h is the height of the rectangle.

Then, the area of the rectangle is $A=b×h$

## Step 3. Let’s calculate the area of the rectangle.

Put the value of base and height into the formula and find the area.

Area of the rectangle :

$\begin{array}{c}A=4×1.2\\ =4.8c{m}^{2}\end{array}$

Therefore, the area of the rectangle is$4.8c{m}^{2}$ .
