### How do you find the length of the side of a square with only the area?

To find the area of a square, where all four sides are of equal length, you simply square the length of one side: for example, the area of a square of four inches is sixteen square inches, or 42 in. To find the length of the side of a square when you only know the area, you simply reverse the process, and take the square root of the area. The square root of 16 is…

### How can you find the side length of a square if you know it's area?

The area of a square is one side multiplied by an adjacent side. In a square all sides are the same length. Then the square root of the area must be the length of any side. If you know the area you can look up the square root in tables found in many older math books, or simply find the square on your calculator.

### How do you find the length of each side of a square?

If you are given the area of the square, then the length of each side is the square root of the area. If you are given the length of the diagonal of a square, then the lenght of each side is equal to the length of the diagonal divided by the square root of 2. l=sqrt(a) l=d/[sqrt(2)] l=length of side, d=diagonal, a=area, sqrt means square root

### What is the length of the side of a square whose are is 49 square inches. can you leave a expalantion?

The side length would be 7. It is 7 because when you find the area of a square, the equation is s2=A. (s=side length A=area). When you only have the area of a square and you want to find the side length, you replace "A" with the area (in this case 49). Then you would have s2=49. To find the side length you would square both sides of the equation. √(s2)=√(49). 49 is perfect square…

### Wading pool is 36 ft the pool is shaped like a square what is the length of each side?

To find the area of a square, multiply a side by a side. A pool 2' square would have 2'x2'=42sq of area. To find the length when you know the square footage (or area) in this case 36, find the square root of the number. The square root of 36 is (the answer to your homework - which I am going to let you figure out)

### If the length of a square is 4 centimeters what is the area of the square?

Area of square= side*side If you mean by "length of the square" one side of the square, then the area is 16 cm^2 (If you mean by "length of the square" it's perimeter, then you have to get it'a side from that data: Perimeter of squre=4*side -> side = (Perimeter of square)/4 then you get one side and you can calculate the area from that...)
