Find the area of the square.
00:00:05.180 --> 00:00:07.780
How do we find the area of a square?
00:00:09.470 --> 00:00:17.790
The area of a square can be found by using a formula, area equals side length times side length.
00:00:19.740 --> 00:00:24.420
In a square, we know that every side will have the same length.
00:00:26.040 --> 00:00:29.530
In this case, each side measures five centimeters.
00:00:31.360 --> 00:00:43.890
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.
00:00:45.620 --> 00:00:47.820
Five times five is 25.
00:00:49.640 --> 00:01:02.260
And when weā€™re working with area, we say centimeters squared, which makes the area of this square 25 centimeters squared.
