The **perimeter** is the length of the outline of a shape. To find the **perimeter** of a rectangle or square you have to add the lengths of all four sides. x is in this case the length of the rectangle while y is the width of the rectangle. The **area** is the measurement of the surface of a shape.

The main task here is to create a class that can be used to find the Area and Perimeter of a rectangle.

**By using the formula for Area of Rectangle and Perimeter of Rectangle:**

Area of Rectangle= Length * Breadth

Perimeter of Rectangle= 2 * (Length + Breadth)

Example:Length = 10

Breadth = 20

Area of rectangle is = 200

Perimeter of rectangle is = 60

**Approach :**

- First, we will create a class called Rectangle in which we will define the variable length and breadth. And the method Area and Perimeter to calculate the Area and Perimeter of Rectangle.
- Then we will create another class in which we will create a main method.
- Inside the main method, the object of the rectangle is created using which we can call assign the values to the variable of Rectangle class, and after assigning the values the methods of the Rectangle class will be called to calculate the Area and Perimeter of Rectangle.
- Both the methods of the Rectangle class will use the values of length and breadth that we had passed from the main method using the object of that class. And the result will get printed.

**Example:**

## Java

`// Java program to create a class to ` `// print the area and perimeter of a ` `// rectangle ` ` ` `import` `java.util.*; ` ` ` `// Rectangle Class File ` `public` `class` `Rectangle { ` ` ` ` ` `// Variable of data type double ` ` ` `double` `length; ` ` ` `double` `width; ` ` ` ` ` `// Area Method to calculate the area of Rectangle ` ` ` `void` `Area() ` ` ` `{ ` ` ` `double` `area; ` ` ` `area = ` `this` `.length * ` `this` `.width; ` ` ` `System.out.println(` `"Area of rectangle is : "` ` ` `+ area); ` ` ` `} ` ` ` ` ` `// Perimeter Method to calculate the Perimeter of ` ` ` `// Rectangle ` ` ` `void` `Perimeter() ` ` ` `{ ` ` ` `double` `perimeter; ` ` ` `perimeter = ` `2` `* (` `this` `.length + ` `this` `.width); ` ` ` `System.out.println(` `"Perimeter of rectangle is : "` ` ` `+ perimeter); ` ` ` `} ` `} ` ` ` ` ` `class` `Use_Rectangle { ` ` ` ` ` `public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ` ` ` `{ ` ` ` `// Object of Rectangle class is created ` ` ` `Rectangle rect = ` `new` `Rectangle(); ` ` ` ` ` `// Assigning the value in the length variable of ` ` ` `// Rectangle Class ` ` ` `rect.length = ` `15.854` `; ` ` ` ` ` `// Assigning the value in the width variable of ` ` ` `// Rectangle Class ` ` ` `rect.width = ` `22.65` `; ` ` ` ` ` `System.out.println(` `"Length = "` `+ rect.length); ` ` ` `System.out.println(` `"Width = "` `+ rect.width); ` ` ` ` ` `// Calling of Area method of Rectangle Class ` ` ` `rect.Area(); ` ` ` ` ` `// Calling of Perimeter method of Rectangle Class ` ` ` `rect.Perimeter(); ` ` ` `} ` `}` |

**Output**

Length = 15.854 Width = 22.65 Area of rectangle is : 359.09309999999994 Perimeter of rectangle is : 77.008
