Rectangle is a quadrilateral having opposing sides parallel and four right angles. To find the area of a rectangle you should multiply its length by its width. The equation is
A = L * W

However, you may know only the length of one side and the diagonal. It this case you first should use the Pythagorean theorem to find the another side. If a and b are the sides, and d is the diagonal, the Pythagorean theorem states that
d^2=a^2+b^2

From there
b=\sqrt{d^2-a^2}

and the final formula for the area of a rectangle is
A=a \cdot \sqrt{d^2-a^2}
