## Python Area of a Rectangle

Let’s write a simple Python program to find the area of a rectangle and understand the mathematical formula for computing its area.

**Area of the Rectangle**

The mathematical formula is as follows:

*area = length * breadth*

To compute, we need two input values for the program. We need to read the length and breadth of the rectangle from the user.

**Python Program**

In this tutorial, we will use Python IDLE as the code editor to write and run the code. Launch the IDLE tool and write the code. to create a new script, choose **File -> New File. **Save the file with the **.py** file extension.

The program to calculate the area is as follows:

```
# Python program to find the area of a rectangle
length = float(input('Enter length := ')) # read length
breadth = float(input('Enter breadth := ')) # read breadth
area = length * breadth # computation
print('Area of the Rectangle := ', area) # print rectangle area
```

**Program Output**

Run the program to view the output.

Enter length := 23.56

Enter breadth := 12.72

Area of the Rectangle := 299.6832
