# Lesson 13

Rectangles with Fractional Side Lengths

### Problem 1

- Find the unknown side length of the rectangle if its area is 11 m
^{2}. Show your reasoning. - Check your answer by multiplying it by the given side length (\(3\frac 23\)). Is the resulting product 11? If not, revise your previous work.

### Problem 3

A television screen has length \(16\frac12\) inches, width \(w\) inches, and area 462 square inches. Select **all** the equations that represent the relationship of the side lengths and area of the television.

\(w \boldcdot 462 = 16\frac12\)

\(16\frac12 \boldcdot w = 462\)

\(462 \div 16\frac12 = w\)

\(462 \div w= 16\frac12\)

\(16\frac12 \boldcdot 462 = w\)
