The **area** of a rectangle is the space occupied by the rectangle. It is the product of its length and breadth. In other words, we get the area after multiplying the length of the rectangle with its width. The **length** of a rectangle refers to the longest side of the rectangle. On the other hand, the **breadth**, which is also known as the *width*, is the shortest part.

length * breadth

Syntax to get the area of a rectangle in Scala

: This is the length of the rectangle.**length**

: This is the breadth of the rectangle.**breadth**

A float value is returned, which is the product of the length and breadth specified.

object Main extends App { // create some lengths var length1 = 23 var length2 = 4.5F var length3 = 50 // create some breadths var breadth1 = 3.5F var breadth2 = 0.5F var breadth3 = 12F // print the areas println(length1 * breadth1) println(length2 * breadth2) println(length3 * breadth3) }

Get the area of a rectangle in Scala

In the code above,

- Lines 3-5: We declare and initialize the lengths of the rectangles.
- Lines 8-10: We declare and initialize the breadths of the rectangles.
- Lines 13-15: We print the products of the lengths and breadths. The results are the areas of the rectangles with such lengths and breadths.
