## What is the Area of a square?

The Area of a square is equal to the square of the length of its side.

Consider a square whose sides are of length ‘S’. Thus, the area of the square = ? × ? = ?2. That is, the area of a square is (side of the square)2. For example,

Consider a square whose sides are 12 cm each. Then, the area of this square = ?2

=122

=144??2

Thus, the area of the square is144??2.

## What is the Area of a rectangle?

The Area of the rectangle is the product of its length and breadth.

Consider a rectangle with length ‘L’ and breadth ‘B’ as shown in the figure.  Register to Get Free Mock Test and Study Material
