The area of a square can be calculated by multiplying the length of one of its sides by itself (s x s = s^2). Squares are commonly found in everyday life, such as in tiles, computer screens, and paper. The area of a square is also important in geometry, as it is used to calculate the area of other shapes, such as rectangles and parallelograms. In construction and woodworking, the area of a square is useful for determining the amount of materials needed for a project.

The formula for determining the area of a square is defined as:

\(A\) \(=\) \(a^2\)

\(A\): the area of the square

\(a\): the length of any side

The SI unit of area is: \(square \text{ } meter\text{ }(m^2)\)

## Find \(A\)

Use this calculator to determine the area of a square when the length of any side is given.
