    ok think about this. square is a shape that has all four sides that are the same right? hence, the area of square is x^2 if x is the length of one side. therefore you can say that x^2 = 196 so x = sqrt(196). and since square has all 4 sides that are thes ame then youcan say that the frame must be sqrt(196) * sqrt(196)
