i dont under stand how you find the area

Tutors, sign in to answer this question.

The formula for the area of a square is (length x width) also denoted as base x height. A square specifically has all sides equal, as stated all four sides are 6 inches.

The area is calculated as 6 inches x 6 inches = 36 square inches = 36 in^{2}

If you are dealing with a 3 dimensional cube the above applies as the area of 1 side. The formula would be length x width x 6 because a cube has a total of 6 sides.

The area is calculated as 6 in x 6 in x 6 sides = 36 in^{2} x 6 = 216 in^{2}

Hi Elaine;

If this is a two-dimensional square, then you multiply the length times the width. Because it is a square, these are the same figure...

6 in x 6 in=36 inches-squared=36 in^{2}

If this is a three-dimensional square, then you multiply the length times the width, times the height. Because this is a square, these are the same figure...

6 in x 6 in x 6 in=216 inches cubed=216 in^{3}

Does that help?

If not, please let me know.
