Suppose the area of a square is 64 sq.cm, find the side length.

  1. 8
  2. 6
  3. 5
  4. 7

Hint:

A square is a rectangle whose all sides are equal.

The correct answer is: 8


    Here, it is given that the area of a square is 64 cm².
    We have, Area of square = 64 cm²
    => (side)² = 64
    => side = √64 = 8cm.
    Hence, the correct option is A.

    Since, the area of a rectangle is length multiplied by breadth. So, area of square is (side)² as its length and breadth are equal.
