 Question 422838: What is one side of a square whose area is 2304.Found 2 solutions by blwinbbbles, algebrahouse.com:Answer by blwinbbbles(106)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Start with what you know...area is found by multipling length x width and in a square length and width are the same size. In this case length x width = 2304 so by calling length = x, you can also say the width = x....therefore x times x = 2304 x times x can also referred to as x^2 (x squared) so... x^2 = 2304 take the square root of both sides... x = 48 so each side of the square is 48 (you did not include units, so I don't know if this is feet, inches, etc. Since all sides are equal, one side of the square is 48 Answer by algebrahouse.com(1079)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!"What is one side of a square whose area is 2304." Area of a square = s^2 {area of a square is one side squared} s^2 = 2304 {"s" is one side} s = 48 {took the square root of both sides} www.algebrahouse.com
