Area of a Square
Area of a Square
The calculation to find the area of a square involves multiplication of one
side of the square times the other side of the square. A short hand method is to
enter the length of one side of the square then press the squared key. The
result will be the squared value of the side.
For this calculation to work properly, a side must be a linear measurement
in decimal format. So if a side is 12 feet, then the square measurement of a
square with each side at 12 feet would be 12 feet times 12 feet or 144 square
feet.
If the length of a side would be 12 feet and six inches, this would need to
be entered as a decimal number. 12.5 feet squared is 156.25 square feet.
