The length and width can't be determined since it is a rectangle. A length would need to be given, or it would have to be a square.

What geometric shape?Since you failed to mention the shape of the area, we will have to assume it's a rectangle of some sort. (Note that a square is a special case of rectangle.) There are an infinite number of rectangles that will contain a given area.length x width = areaOne equation like this cannot be used to find twounknown quantities. You would have to be given more information: perhaps the perimeter or either the width or the length, or perhaps you have been told the ratio of length to width.Alternatively, if you know that your rectangle is in fact a square, then its length and width equal the square root of the area.

A cube has 6 squares as the faces of a cube. The area of the square is A = s² where s is the length of the side. Given that area formula, we have: A = (3 centimeters)² = 9 centimeters² So the area of each face of a cube is 9 centimeters²

You do not indicate if the given area is the total area of the square and the triangle. Or whether they are equal values.

Divide its area by a given side

In the case of a rectangle, you would maximize the area given the perimeter by making the dimensions equal. In other words, you would make the rectangle into a square. However, to truly maximize the area, you would make the perimeter a perfect circle.

if it is a rectangle and those are the lengths given then the area is calculated by multiplying the length by width. 8.5x4 is 26cm2
