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.

(Continued from above)
If the side of the square is 's', then Area =
s x s = s^{2}. For example, the area of a square field with side 50 m is
2500 m^{2}. 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 m^{2}, then
its side is 625 =
25 m.
