# C program to find area of a rectangle

Write a C program to input length and width of a rectangle and find area of the given rectangle. How to calculate area of a rectangle in C programming. Logic to find area of a rectangle whose length and width are given in C programming.

Example
Input

```Enter length: 5
Enter width: 10```

Output

`Area of rectangle = 50 sq. units`

## Area of rectangle

Area of a rectangle is given by the formula -

Where l is length and w is width of the rectangle.

## Logic to find area of rectangle

Below is the step by step descriptive logic to find area of rectangle -

1. Input length and width of rectangle. Store it in two different variables say length and width.
2. Apply formula to calculate rectangle area i.e. `area = length * width`.
3. Finally, print the value of area.

## Program to find area of rectangle

``````/**
* C program to find area of rectangle
*/

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
float length, width, area;

/*
* Input length and width of rectangle
*/
printf("Enter length of rectangle: ");
scanf("%f", &length);
printf("Enter width of rectangle: ");
scanf("%d", &width);

/* Calculate area of rectangle */
area = length * width;

/* Print area of rectangle */
printf("Area of rectangle = %f sq. units ", area);

return 0;
}``````

Output

```Enter length of rectangle: 5
Enter width of rectangle: 10
Area of rectangle = 50.000000 sq. units```
