Margin Area: Area outside the border. The margin area is invisible. The dimensions of the margin area are the margin-box height and margin-box width.

Border Area: Area between the box padding and margin. You can see it in the figure. Its dimensions are given by the height and width of the border.

Padding Area: It is the Area between the content box and the border box. It includes the element’s padding. Its dimensions are given by the width of the padding box and the height of the padding box.

Content Area: Area consists of content like images, text, or other media content. Its dimensions are given by content-box width and height.

The size of the box itself is calculated like this:

Total Width = width + padding-left + padding-right + border-left + border-right.

Total Height = height + padding-top + padding-bottom + border-top + border-bottom.
