The area of a square is derived n by the formula: *Area =width × height*

Width and height of the square are always same, hence *Area = s ^{2}, *Where s is the length of one side.

**Demonstration:**

Find the area of a square plot of side 8 m.

**Solution:**

Side of the square = 8 m

Area of the square = side × side = 8 m × 8 m = 64 sq m
