Word Problems on Area of a Square

In word problems on area of a square we will find the area whose side is given. For finding the area of a given square, we should make sure that the sides are in the same unit of length. If they are given in different units, change them to the same unit.

10 mm = 1 cm

100 cm = 1 m

1000 m = 1 km

Word problems on area of a square:

1. Find the area of a square of side 27 cm.

Area of a square = length × length

                         = 27 × 27 sq. cm.

                         = 729 sq. cm.

2. Find the area of a square of side 35 m.

Area of a square = length × length

                        = 35 × 35 sq. m.

                        = 1225 sq. m.

3. The length of the side of a square is 25 cm. Find the area.

Length of the side of a square = 25 cm

Are of the square                   = Side × Side

                                           = 25 cm × 25 cm

                                           = 625 cm2

4. Length of a side of a square field is 275 m. What will be cost of levelling the field at a rate of 10 cent per square metre?

Length of the square field = 275 m

Are of the square field = side × side

                              = 275 m × 275 m

                              = 75625 m2

Cost of levelling the field = 75625 × 10 cent

                                    = 756250 cent

                                    = $ 7562.50
