Fundamentals of C, Data types, Talking user input in C, Area of rectangle

Area of rectanlge

Area of a rectangle can be given by: length * width

    float length, width, area;

     * Read length and width of rectangle from user
    printf("Enter length of rectangle: ");
    scanf("%f", &length);
    printf("Enter width of rectangle: ");
    scanf("%d", &width);

    /* Calculates area of rectangle */
    area = length * width;

    /* Prints the area of rectangle */
    printf("\nArea of rectangle = %f sq. units ", area);

    return 0;

Enter length of rectangle: 5
Enter width of rectangle: 10

Area of rectangle = 50.000000 sq. units

Happy coding ;)
