Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you wouldn't say the area of a table top is 10 feet. that is a linear measure. you could say it is 10 square feet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0follow this, Let x be the original side A=169 A=s^2 169=(x+8)^2, we can extract the square root of both sides 13=x+8 x=138 x=5 cm , this is the original side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so u would say for 169cm^2 , 169 square feet. so u just squared the 169? then  from 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually i did not square the 169. i thought of a number whose square is 169

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but that's only the case of a truly square shape, for now you should just ignore the sq units and just put it on the answer as a definition

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a cm * b cm = a* b cm^2, not cm^2 will always be there, so take it as a definition
