# Lisa has a rectangular trampoline that is 6 feet long and 12 feet wide. What is the area of her trampoline in square feet?

The area of the trampoline is $72\text{\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}}square\text{\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}}feet$.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Area of the rectangle.

The area of the rectangle is $L×W$, where $L$ is the length of the rectangle and $W$ is the width.

## Step 2. Put the value of length and width into the formula.

It is given that the length and width of the trampoline are $6\text{\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}}feet\text{\hspace{0.17em}}and\text{\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}}12\text{\hspace{0.17em}}feet$ respectively.

Put $L=6\text{\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}}and\text{\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}}W=12$ into the formula $L×W$.

$Area=6×12$

## Step 3. Multiply the numbers.

$Area=72\text{\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}}square\text{\hspace{0.17em}\hspace{0.17em}}feet$
