Math question.

## what is the area of a square with sides 8 ft. long?

# 5 Answers

The area of a 2 dimensional 4 sided parallelogram is simply length times width (L*W) and is expressed in 'square' whatever measurement you are using. So, 8*8=64, and is expressed as 64 square feet.

The area of a square with sides of 8 ft is 64 square feet. Use the formula for area of a square: A=s*s

Answer is 64 square feet

The formula to determine the area of a square is:

area = width * height

Because a square is equal on all sides you can use the formula:

area= s^{2 }

s will be the length of one side

s^{2 will be the length of both sides so it should look like this:}

area= 8*8 which equals 64

Because s (the length of one side) is squared (because you have 2 sides) the final answer will be 64 ft^{2}

A square has all sides equal. So, since one side is 8 feet long the other sides also have the same length.

Area of a rectangle is length multiplied by the width. In this case, length is equal to width. So,

Area is 8 ft * 8 ft which is **64 ft ^{2}**.

The area of a square is the side length squared, so it is (8ft)(8ft) or 64ft^{2}.
