- Write a C program to find perimeter and area of rectangle.
- WAP in C to find perimeter of a rectangle.

#### Required Knowledge

To find the **perimeter and area of rectangle**, we will first take length and breadth of rectangle as input from user using scanf function and then calculate area and perimeter of rectangle using following formulae.

**Perimeter of Rectangle = 2 x (length + width)****Area of Rectangle = length x width**

## C program to find the perimeter and area of rectangle

/* * C program to find perimeter and area of Rectangle, * Given its length and Breadth */ #include <stdio.h> int main() { float length, width, area, perimeter; /* * Take length and breadth as input from user using scanf */ printf("Enter length of Rectangle\n"); scanf("%f", &length); printf("Enter width of Rectangle\n"); scanf("%f", &width); /* Perimeter of Rectangle = 2 x (length + width) */ perimeter = 2 * (length + width); printf("Perimeter of Rectangle : %f\n", perimeter); /* Area of Rectangle = length x width */ area = length * width; printf("Area of Rectangle : %f\n", area); return 0; }

Output

Enter length of Rectangle 3.5 Enter width of Rectangle 5 Perimeter of Rectangle : 17.000000 Area of Rectangle : 17.500000
