Question: The area of a square game board is 144 sq. in. What is the length of one of the sides of the board?

The measure of the surface enclosed by a square is known as the area of a square.

Answer: The length of one of the sides of the board with an area of 144 sq. in is 12 inches

Let's look into the relationship between the area of a square and it's side.

Explanation:

Given: Area of the square game board = 144 sq. in

Let the side of the board be 'a' inches

We know that,

Area of a square = Side2

=> a2 = 144

By taking square root on both the sides

=> a = 12                           (since, 12 × 12 = 144)

Thus, the length of one of the sides of the board with an area of 144 sq. in is 12 inches.
