You must use the Scanner class in Java: The Scanner class is a class in java.util, which allows the user to read values of various types.

Here is the solution:

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Pr_01_RectangleArea {
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        Scanner scanner = new Scanner(;

        System.out.println("Please write the first side of the rectangle:");
        int sideOne = scanner.nextInt();

        System.out.println("Please write the second side of the rectangle:");
        int sideTwo = scanner.nextInt();

        System.out.println("The area of your rectangle is:" );
        System.out.println(sideOne * sideTwo);
