Full Answer

If the length and width of the rectangle can be any values, the number of possible rectangles with areas of 64 units is virtually infinite. For example, a rectangle with the dimensions 2.5 x 25.6 has an area of 64, as does one with the dimensions 10.24 x 6.25. In fact, any two rational numbers that have a product of 64 can be the length and width of a rectangle with an area of 64 units.
