Draw lines to make the unit squares. Use the marks on the sides of the rectangle as guides. Find the number of unit squares and write the area.

A square with sides of 3

Area= 9square units

A 2 x 4 rectangle

Area= 8square units

A 4 x 3 rectangle

Area= 12square units

A 5 x 3 rectangle

Area= 15square units

A 6 x 2 rectangle
