Awesome, thank you for the visual. And I just wanted to confirm that the answer took into consideration that the area of the rectangle is 16^2 (16 inches squared), not just 16?

The inches squared means that the units of measurement of the area is inches squared. Length and width are both measured in terms of inches, so when you think of the units of measurement for the area, you're multiplying (inches) by (inches), which means your answer is going to be (inches squared). Hope that helps!

So technically, the answer is 16 inches squared, not simply 16. You're right on about that!

Thanks for the explanation!

Glad I could help!
