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(){ float length, breadth, area; // Asking for input printf("Enter the length of rectangle: "); scanf("%f", &length); printf("Enter the breadth of rectangle: "); scanf("%f", &breadth); // Calculating the area area = length * breadth; // 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**,

**and**

`breadth`

**.**

`area`

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

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

// Calculating the area area = length * breadth;

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

**format specifier is used to limit the result to**

`%.2f`

**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.
