Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just take the square root of the area. That will give the side length remember is a square side length l \[Area = l^2\] so if you know the area \[595 = l^2\] hope it helps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no... in a square every side is the same length... so area is Area = length x length or A = l^2 so take the square root of the area to get the side length you answer is correct
