Find the area of the square.
How do we find the area of a square? The area of a square can be found by using a formula, area equals side length times side length. In a square, we know that every side will have the same length. In this case, each side measures five centimeters. Using this formula, we would plug in five centimeters for the 𝑆, for the side length, and we would calculate five centimeters times five centimeters. Five times five is 25.
And when we’re working with area, we say centimeters squared, which makes the area of this square 25 centimeters squared.
