## Area of a Rectangle Calculator

The area of a rectangle is calculated using the following forumla: $$Area = L \times H$$ In this equation, $$L$$ is the length of the rectangle and $$H$$ is the height of the rectangle. The area is found simply by taking the product (multiplication) of those two lengths.
The area of a square is calculated in the same way. The difference between the two is that a square is a special kind of rectangle where the length is the same as the height.
