Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it's square and all sides of square are equal dw:1440250183784:dw formula is \[\huge\rm A=s^2\] you have to solve for s a is area which is 202

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just take square root both sides to cancel out the square :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can convert root to exponent \[\huge\rm \sqrt[n]{x^m}=x^\frac{ m}{ n }\] so you can convert square root to 1/2 exponent \[\huge\rm \sqrt{s^2}= s^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } \times 2}\] cancel out the 2's \[\huge\rm \sqrt{s^2}= s^{\frac{ 1 }{\cancel{ 2} } \times \cancel{2}}\] and then it's equal to s that's why we should take square root to cancel out square
