Becoming an expert in mathematics is not all bout mastering mathematical formulas. It requires one to understand how to derive and use the concepts. It is easy to memorize mathematical concepts, but if one understands the source of the formulae, one can create new formulae and use them in the real world. Area in mathematics is defined as the total amount of space occupied by an object.
A square has all its sides equal; therefore, the area of a square is calculated by the side squared. Area=s*s = s2. This formula comes from the fact that a square has all its sides equal. Take, for example, a square object of sides 3 meters, then the space covered by the object when placed on the ground is 3 x 3 = 9 m2. Various mathematical shapes have different formulas for finding an area. For example, to calculate the area of a rectangle, we multiply the length by the width.
