    Answer: 16.625 in²

    Step-by-step explanation: We can find the area of a rectangle using the formula that is shown below.

    Area = length · width

    Since the length is 4 and 3/4 inches and the width is 3 and 1/2 inches, we can plug this information into the formula to get [tex](4 \frac{3}{4} in.)(3\frac{1}2} in.)[/tex].

    From here, we need to rewrite 4 and 3/4 and 3 and 1/2 as either improper fractions or decimals in order to multiply.

    I would suggest rewriting 4 and 3/4 as the decimal 4.75

    and 3 and 1/2 as the decimal 3.5.

    So we have (4.75 in.)(3.5 in.) which simplifies to 16.625 in².

    So the area of the rectangle is 16.625 in².

    Answer:

    16  5/8  in^2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The area of a rectangle is found by

    A = l*w

      = 3 1/2 * 4 3/4

    Changing to improper fractions

      = (2*3+1)/2  * (4*4+3)/4

      = 7/2 * 19/4

         133/8

    Changing back to a mixed number

    8 goes into 133 16 times with 5 left over

    16  5/8
