You mean why do we use square units like square inches, square feet, square meters, etc. to describe area?

Well you typically don't square things when you find the area of a rectangle, triangle, or trapezoid. Those are b*h, 1/2*b*h, and 1/2*h*(b1 + b2) respectively... the only basic ones I'm familiar with that you square for are squares and circles. The reason we square to find areas of squares is simple: We're taking the length of one side and replicating that length across the same length in another dimension. A circle, you are essentially finding the number of "squares" inside it. I guess I'm not quite sure what you're looking for with this question...

oh! i just got the answer from the internet! thx for ur support though it is becuase you're multipling two things:base and height & lenght and width Volume is the product of three lengths (L × width × ht) = Volume³
