Geometry: Area of a Square
This is a free lesson from our course in Geometry 
In this lesson, we will look at the formula used to calculate the area of a square . You will learn it 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. (More text below video...)

(Continued from above) If the side of the square is 's', then Area = s x s = s2. 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.
