the figure shown here is a square with

sides that each have a length of 20

centimeters to find its area notice that

a square is a type of rectangle so we

can use the formula area equals length

times width however since the length and

width of a square are always equal we

use a special version of this formula to

find the area of a square instead of

area equals length times width we say

that the area of a square equals side

times side or side squared and since the

sides of the given square each have a

length of 20 centimeters the area of the

square is equal to 20 centimeters

squared or 20 centimeters times 20

centimeters which equals 400 centimeters

squared so the area of the given square

is 400 square centimeters
