To avoid confusing l and 1, I'll use L and W.
L is the total page length
W is the total width
Area = LW = 100
Let L' be the printable length, W' the printable width.
L' = L  2*1 = L2
W' = W  2*1.5 = W3
The printable area has margins top and bottom, and right and left. So, the printable area P is
P = L'W' = (L2)(W3)
