# How many 1 cm squares would it take to construct a square that is 1 m on each side?

We will be dividing the area of a bigger square with a smaller square for solving this.

## Answer: It would take 10000 number of 1 cm squares to construct a square that is 1m on each side.

Let's see the solution step by step.

**Explanation:**

Given: Smaller square area = 1 cm square.

Side of bigger square = 1 m

First of all, convert the dimensions into the same units.

We know that,

1m = 100 cm.

So, area of bigger square = 100 cm × 100 cm

= 10000 cm square

Hence, number of small squares in bigger square = Area of bigger square / Area of smaller square

= 10000 cm square / 1 cm square

= 10000
