In this mini- lesson,you'll learn the formula used for calculating area of a square. It will be shared with the with the help of some examples and practice questions with solution, using multimedia explanations by the instructor.
The area of a square can be obtained by multiplying the lengths of the two sides. Since the lengths of the sides are the same in a square, you square the length of the side to get the area. In other words the area of a square can be determined by multiplying the base times itself.
If the side of the square is ‘s
’, then Area = s
. For example, the area of a square field with side 50 m is 2500 m2
. If the area of a square is known, then its side can be calculated by: side of square = ?Area of square.
For example, if the area of a square field is 625 m2
, then its side is ?625 = 25 m.
