Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the area of any rectangle is the product of it's sides (A = a * b). A square is a rectangle, where all 4 sides are the same (so a = b). That means, the area of a square is A = a * a = a^2 So you got \[A = a^2 = 225\] \[a = \sqrt{225}\] \[a = 15\]
