To calculate the area of a rectangle, you need to know the length and width of the rectangle. The formula for calculating the area of a rectangle is:
Area = Length x Width
Here are the steps to calculate the area of a rectangle:

Measure the length of the rectangle: Using a ruler or any measuring tool, determine the length of one side of the rectangle. Let’s say the length is 10 units.

Measure the width of the rectangle: Measure the length of the other side of the rectangle, which should be perpendicular to the length. Let’s say the width is 5 units.

Multiply the length by the width: Take the length measurement (10 units) and multiply it by the width measurement (5 units).
Area = Length x Width
Area = 10 units x 5 units
Area = 50 square units 
Determine the unit of measurement: The area will be in square units because you multiplied two linear measurements. In this case, the area is 50 square units.
So, the area of the rectangle with a length of 10 units and a width of 5 units is 50 square units.
