Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I like the question, by using the word "whole" your teacher is reminding you that it takes 5 parts to make a whole side, but you only have one part. Never mind that, I'll help with your question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The language is the sneaky part here, if you were to say you had one "one meter square", you would also be saying you have one squared meter. When you say one meter (\(1m\)) you're really saying one times one meter (\(1\times m\)). If you were to multiply the base times the height, or the length times the width, or the x by the y, you end up with\[1m\times 1m\]\[1\times m\times 1\times m\]\[1\times 1\times m\times m\]\[1m^2\]One meter "squared".
