I've been assig to do the class rectangle, the class has two instance variables: length and width of the rectangle, and the methods methods setLength(), getLength(), setWidth(), getWidth() and computeArea(). Do you have any idea to do this. Anyway i'm to to python.

A class does not compute an area, it has an area.

Start by declaring a class named Rectangle. Write a constructor (an __init__() method) that accepts arguments self, length and width, and assign the latter two to self.length and self.width inside the constructor.

This basic class example should send you on your Python way:

class Rectangle:
    # class constructor
    # supply it with initial length and width values
    # self refers to the instance
    def __init__(self, length, width):
        self.width = width
        self.length = length

    def setLength(self, length):
        self.length = length

    def show(self):
        print("rectangle has length = {}".format(self.length))
        print("rectangle has width = {}".format(self.width))

length = 10
width = 5
# create a class instance
rect = Rectangle(length, width)

# show initial setting

''' result >>
rectangle has length = 10
rectangle has width = 5

print('-'*40)  # a line of  dashes
# now set length to another value

# show new setting

''' result >>
rectangle has length = 17
rectangle has width = 5
