$$0.5^2=0.25\\12*0.25=$$

go again if i'm reading you right..... then if $$s = 1/ 2$$ unit then $$A = 12s^2 =12 (\frac{1}{2})^2$$ $$units^2$$

no $$(\dfrac{1}{2})^2=\dfrac{1}{4}$$ so divide 12/4 = 3

10. Mehek14

yes u square 1/2 and you get 1/4 and the you can multiply 12 * 1/4 or just divide 12/4 both will give you 3
