    well the area of a square is modeled via A=s^2 so your answer would be found from 6.25^2

    All you need to do is plug in S which is 6.25ft So, a = s^2 would turn into a =6.25^2 Then all you do is just punch that into your calculator and whatever you get is your answer. Then that's just a = s
