Ollie,

I suppose s= the side of a square figure so

A_{square}= s * s = s^{2}

also

since a square is really two right triangles together when a diagonal is drawn then

the area of one triangle is

A_{triangle} = 1/2bh where b=the base and h= the height

so the area of the square is

A_{sqare} = 2*(1/2)bh = bh

Hope that helps!
