    Well Area of a Square is A = a^2 so you can plug 52 in for A and take the square root

    none of the answers are correct - the length cannot be measured in square feet - length is measured in feet.

    however - if the length were 6 feet thene the are would be 6 * 6 (6^2) sq feet = 36 sq ft do the same with the other answers - and find the nearest to 52 sq feet

    Basically all you had to do was square root 52 and round it to the nearest whole number and thats your answer :)
