### Example Question #21 : Geometry

Find the area of the square shown below:       Explanation:

A square has sides that are all equal. Area is length times width, and in the case of a square it is the side measurement times itself. ### Example Question #22 : Geometry

Use the following to answer the question. Find the area of the square.      Explanation:

To find the area of a square, we use the following formula: where l is the width and w is the width of the square.

If we look at the square we can see the width 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 #23 : Geometry

Use the following square to answer the question: Find the area.      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. We can see the width of the square 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  ### Example Question #24 : Geometry

Use the following square to solve the problem: Find the area.      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 we can see the length is 5cm.  Because it is a square, all sides are equal.  Therefore, the width is also 5cm.  So, we can substitute  1 3 Next →
