Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The square are equal. So the sides are equal. Once you put them side by side you can see the number of square sides that are on the perimeter of the rectangle. Davide the number of sides in the parameter by 360 and you should get the length of one side of a square. once you know the side length just square it to get the area of one square
