    Answer:

    d(A) = 8 cm²

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Area of a rectangle is:

    A(r) = L * w

    L is the length, and w is the width, then

    d(A) = L* dw + w*dl    

    From problem statement we know:

    L = 42 cm         w = 38 cm

    With an error in measurement of 0,1 cm in each case, then

    dw = dl = 0,1 cm

    And

    d(A) = 42*0,1 + 38*0,1    ⇒  d(A) =  4.2 + 3.8    ⇒    d(A) = 8 cm²
