Find the area of a square that has a base of length 6 feet.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the area of a square, we will use the following formula:

where l is the length and w is the width of the square.

 

Now, we know the square has a base of length 6 feet.  Because it is a square, we know that all sides are equal.  Therefore, all sides are 6 feet.

Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get

Example Question #1197 : Isee Lower Level (Grades 5 6) Mathematics Achievement

Use the following square to answer the question:

Square1

Find the area.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the area of a square, we will use the following formula:

where l is the length and w is the width of the square.

 

Now, let's look at the square.

Square1

We can see the length is 5cm.  Because it is a square, all sides are equal.  Therefore, the width is also 5cm. 

Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the area of a square, we will use the following formula:

where l is the length and w is the width of the square. 

 

Now, we know the width of the square is 7in.  Because it is a square, we know that all sides are equal.  Therefore, the length is also 7in. 

Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get

Example Question #1199 : Isee Lower Level (Grades 5 6) Mathematics Achievement

Use the following square to answer the question:

Square4

Find the area.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the area of a square, we will use the following formula:

where l is the length and w is the width of the square.

 

Now, given the square

Square4

We can see the width is 2in.  Because it is a square, all sides are equal.  Therefore, the length is also 2in. 

Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get
