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

**Solution:**

It is given that,

Area of smaller square = 1 cm square.

Side of bigger square = 1 m

As we know that,

1 m = 100 cm

Then, 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

Therefore, it would take 10000 numbers of 1 cm squares to construct a square that is 1 m on each side.

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

**Summary:**

It would take 10000 numbers of 1 cm squares to construct a square that is 1 m on each side.
