## McGraw-Hill My Math Grade 3 Answer Key Chapter 13 Lesson 5 Tile Rectangles to Find Area

You can find the area of a rectangle on a grid by counting the number of unit squares. If a rectangle is not on a grid, you can find its area by tiling it.

The dimensions of a rectangle are its length and width.

**Draw It**

Find the area of the rectangle at the right by tiling it.

1. Tile the rectangle by separating the rectangle into unit squares. Draw unit squares on the rectangle so that the length of the rectangle is 8 unit squares and the width is 3 unit squares.

2. Count the total number of unit squares.

There are ______________ unit squares.

So, the area of the rectangle is ________________ square units.

Tiling the rectangle results in an array.

The array has ___________ rows and _____________ columns.

Find 3 × 8. 3 × 8 = _______________

What do you notice about the product of 3 × 8 and the total number of unit squares tiled in the rectangle?

Answer:

There are 24 unit squares.

So, the area of the rectangle is 24 square units.

Tiling the rectangle results in an array.

The array has 3 rows and 8 columns.

Find 3 × 8. 3 × 8 = 24

They are same.

**Try It**

Find the area of the rectangle at the right by tiling it.

1. Tile the rectangle by separating the rectangle into unit squares. Draw unit squares on the rectangle so that the length of the rectangle is 6 unit squares and the width is 5 unit squares.

2. Count the total number of unit squares.

There are _____________ unit squares.

So, the area of the rectangle is ____________ square units.

Tiling the rectangle results in an array.

The array has _____________ rows and _____________ columns.

Find 5 × 6. 5 × 6 = _____________

What do you notice about the product of 5 × 6 and the total number of unit squares tiled in the rectangle?

Answer:

There are 30 unit squares.

So, the area of the rectangle is 30 square units.

Tiling the rectangle results in an array.

The array has 5 rows and 6 columns.

Find 5 × 6. 5 × 6 = 30

They are same.
