What is the rectangle method in math?

The term "rectangle method" is used in different ways in math, but I will guess that your question is related to finding areas on a Geoboard. A Geoboard has a grid of pegs; you can make outlines of figures by stretching elastic bands around the pegs. If your figure is a triangle, you can find it's area by making the smallest rectangle which will enclose the triangle (The rectangle should have vertical and horizontal sides). The area of the rectangle can be found easily by multiplying the length by the width. The area of the triangle is half of the area of the rectangle.

Because a triangle is half of a rectangle. The area of a rectangle is length times width, the area of a triangle is half that.


How is the triangle formula derived from the area of rectangles?

The area of a triangle is expressed using the formula A=(1/2)(bh) Where A is area Where B is length of the base of the triangle. Where H is the height of the triangle. The area of a rectangle is A=BH, Where B is the length of the base of the rectangle. Where H is the height of the rectangle. Because a triangle, essentially, is a half of a rectangle, you find the area of the whole rectangle that the triangle comes from, then divide that in half.


What is the area of a rectangle when the sides have four different lengths?

A rectangle is generally defined as a quadrilateral with four right angles. No rectangle can have four different side lengths by that definition. Finding the area of such a shape is therefore impossible.
