How many 1 cm squares would it take to construct a square that is 2 m on each side?
Answer: It would take 40000 number of 1 cm squares to construct a square that is 2 m on each side.
Let's see the solution step by step.
Given: Area of smaller square = 1 cm square.
Side of bigger square = 2 m
First of all, we have to convert the dimensions of both squares into the same units.
We know that, here are 100 cm in 1 m.
So, 2 m = 2 × 100 = 200 cm
Now, area of bigger square = 200 cm × 200 cm
= 40000 cm square
Hence, number of small squares possible in bigger square = Area of bigger square/ Area of smaller square
= 40000 cm square / 1 cm square
