Find the area of the square.
00:00:03.040 --> 00:00:05.440
How do we find the area of a square?
00:00:06.360 --> 00:00:16.480
The area of a square can be found by using a formula, area equals side length times side length.
00:00:17.000 --> 00:00:22.360
In a square, we know that every side will have the same length.
00:00:22.880 --> 00:00:28.200
In this case, each side measures five centimeters.
00:00:28.720 --> 00:00:42.200
Using this formula, we would plug in five centimeters for the š¯‘†, for the side length, and we would calculate five centimeters times five centimeters.
00:00:42.720 --> 00:00:46.640
Five times five is 25.
00:00:47.360 --> 00:00:59.760
And when weā€™re working with area, we say centimeters squared, which makes the area of this square 25 centimeters squared.
