$A=16\frac{2}{3}$ square inches

Work Step by Step

The area $A$ of a rectangle is given by the formula $A=LW$ where $L$=length and $W$= width. Use the formula above to obtain: $\require{cancel} \\A=6\frac{1}{4} \cdot 2\frac{2}{3} \\A=\frac{4(6)+1}{4}\cdot \frac{3(2)+2}{3} \\A=\frac{25}{\cancel{4}} \cdot \frac{\cancel{8}2}{3} \\A=\frac{25(2)}{3} \\A=\frac{50}{3} \\A=16\frac{2}{3}$
