# A table-top measures 2 m by 1 m 50 cm. What is its area in square metres?

**Solution:**

We will be using the area of rectangle formula (length × breadth) for finding the area of the table-top.

From the given data we have,

l = 2m

b = 1m 50 cm

= 1m + 0.5 m

= 1.50 m

As we know that, Area of a rectangle = length(l) × breadth(b)

Area = l × b

= 2 × 1.50

= 3 m^{2}

Therefore, the area of the table-top is 3 square metres.
