Question:

Find the length of each side of a square whose area is equal to the area of a rectangle of length 13.6 metres and breadth 3.4 metres.

Solution:

Area of the rectangle $=(13.6 \times 3.4)=46.24$ sq $\mathrm{m}$

Thus, area of the square is $46.24 \mathrm{sq} \mathrm{m}$.

Length of each side of the square $=\sqrt{46.24} \mathrm{~m}$

Using long division method:
