    so 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

    nice so use that formula where a is area s= sides substitute a for 202 solve for s

    formula: area of square A=s^2

    \[\huge\rm 202=s^2\] do you know how to sovle for s?

    just take square root both sides to cancel out the square :)

    you 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
