to squares areas equal to the length of one side

squared So the area of the square is eight squared

equals well sixty four square units Alternatively if you wanted

to flex your two d skills and coordinate geometry well

you could have calculated the distance between two points to

find the length of one side of the square and

then looking at the top right corner we can see

that one side starts it four Comma five right there

and goes down to the point for negative Three We

don't need to worry about the distance formula since the

line is vertical and on ly the why value changes

from one point to the other The length of the

line can then be calculated in terms of the difference

between the two Why coordinates five and then subtracting the

negative three there So that gets us eight Yeah the

measurement of one side of the square gives us enough

info to find the area of square area which is

sixty for have you ever said a word so many

times it starts losing its meaning Square square Where Yeah 00:01:19.917 --> [endTime] weird
