# C Program to Find Area of Rectangle

Howdy readers, today you will learn how to write a program to find the area of a rectangle using the C Programming language.

The area of a rectangle (A) is the product of its length ‘a’ and breadth ‘b’.

• Area of Rectangle (A) = Length (a) x Breadth (b)

The below program prompts the user to enter the length and breadth of a rectangle, then it computes the area using the above formula.

So, without any delay, let’s begin this tutorial.

## C Program to Find Area of Rectangle

C Program

```// C Program to Find Area of Rectangle
#include <stdio.h>
int main(){

printf("Enter the length of rectangle: ");
scanf("%f", &length);
printf("Enter the breadth of rectangle: ");

// Calculating the area

// Displaying result
printf("Area of the rectangle is: %.2f", area);

return 0;
}
```

Output

```Enter the length of rectangle: 5.4
Enter the breadth of rectangle: 7.6
Area of the rectangle is: 41.04
```

Explanation

```    float length, breadth, area;
```

We have declared three float data type variables named` length`, `breadth` and `area`.

```    // Asking for input
printf("Enter the length of rectangle: ");
scanf("%f", &length);
printf("Enter the breadth of rectangle: ");
```

Then, the program prompts the user to enter the length and breadth.

```    // Calculating the area
```

Area of the rectangle is computed using the formula, area = length x breadth.

```    // Displaying result
printf("Area of the rectangle is: %.2f", area);
```

Finally, the area of the rectangle is displayed on the screen using `printf()` function. The `%.2f` format specifier is used to limit the result to 2 decimal places.

## Conclusion

I hope after going through this tutorial, you understand how to write a program to find the area of a rectangle using the C Programming language.
