# Calculate The Area Of A Square

Last updated: Saturday, June 24, 2023

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.
