Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, the picture is obiously a rectangle so the formula for its area is A = length*breadth or breadth*height or width*height whatever you say it. In the question its given that one side is 4/3 of the other side. that means that if one side is w than the other side will be (4/3)*w so the area would be A = w*w(4/3)
