Find the area of a square whose side length is seven centimeters.

We know that all four sides of a square are equal in length. In this case, they’re equal to seven centimeters. The area of any square can be calculated by squaring the side length. Squaring something involves multiplying it by itself.

The area is equal to seven centimeters multiplied by seven centimeters. Seven multiplied by seven is 49, and our units for area are square centimeters. If we are multiplying two lengths measured in centimeters, the resulting area will be in square centimeters.
