Area of a Square
How to find Area of a Square
In area of a square we will learn how to find the area by counting squares.To find the area of a region of a closed plane figure, we draw the figure on a centimeter squared paper and then count the number of squares enclosed by the figure.We know, that square is a rectangle whose length and breadth are equal. in a square all four sides are equal.
Therefore, area of a square = (side × side) square units = (side)^2 square units.
Look at the above figure. You can see that the area of a square having sides 2 cm each is equal to the area of 4 squares of sides 1 cm each = 4 cm^2. It can also be expressed as 2 cm × 2 cm = 4 cm^2. Area of a square is 2 times of its each side.
