How many square rods in a piece of land, 6 rods long and 4 rods wide? Illustrate this question by drawing a parallelogram. Show - that a strip of land, 6 rods long and 1 rod wide, will contain 6 square rods, and that there will therefore be as many times 6 square rods as there are rods in the width. Hence the rule for obtaining the number of square inches, feet, or rods, in any surface, multiply the NUMBER of inches, feet, or rods, in the length, by the NUMBER in the breadth. Do not use the term "multiply the length by the breadth," for feet cannot be multiplied by feet-the multiplier always being an abstract number. 65.
