# The length and breadth of the three rectangles are as given below:

(a) 9 m and 6 m

(b) 17 m and 3 m

(c) 4 m and 14 m

Which one has the largest area and which one has the smallest?

**Solution:**

We will be using the area of rectangle formula to calculate the areas of the three rectangles given.

(a) Length(l) = 9 m and Breadth(b) = 6 m

Area of rectangle = l × b

= 9 × 6

= 54 m^{2}

(b) Length(l) = 17 m and Breadth(b) = 3 m

Area of rectangle = l × b

= 17 × 3

= 51 m^{2}

(c) Length(l) = 4 m and Breadth(b) = 14 m

Area of rectangle = l × b

= 4 × 14

= 56 m^{2}

Therefore, the area of the rectangle with the dimensions 4m and 14m having an area of 56 m^{2 }that is (c) has the largest area whereas, the area of the rectangle with dimensions 17m and 3m having an area of 51 m^{2} that is (b) has the smallest area.

## The length and breadth of three rectangles are as given below: (a) 9 m and 6 m (b) 17 m and 3 m (c) 4 m and 14 m

**Summary:**

From the given options, we found that the area of the rectangle with the dimensions 4m and 14m having an area of 56 m^{2 }that is (c) has the largest area whereas, the area of the rectangle with dimensions 17m and 3m having an area of 51 m^{2} that is (b) has the smallest area.
