Question:

Soccer fields vary in size. A large soccer field is 115 m long and 85.0 m wide.

What is its area in square feet?

The Area of a Rectangle:

A rectangle is a flat geometrical figure that has four sides: two pairs of opposite and parallel sides. The opposite and parallel sides of a rectangle are congruent. The area of a rectangle is the amount of space covered by the figure, and it is given by {eq}A = l\times w {/eq}, where {eq}l {/eq} is the length and {eq}w {/eq} is the width.

Answer and Explanation:


The area of a rectangle is given by:

  • {eq}A = l\times w {/eq}

Where {eq}l {/eq} is the length and {eq}w {/eq} is the width.

If a large soccer field is {eq}l = 115\; \rm m {/eq} long and {eq}w = 85.0\; \rm m {/eq} wide, then the area of this field is:

  • {eq}A = 115\; \rm m\times 85.0\; \rm m {/eq}
  • {eq}\boxed{\color{blue}{A = 9,775\; \rm m^2}} {/eq}
