# The total fencing around a square field is 80 yards. The field has an area of how many square yards?

Area is the region enclosed within the boundary of a figure.

## Answer: The field has an area of 400 square yards

Let's calculate the area of the square field

**Explanation: **

Total fencing = Perimeter of a square field = 80 yards

We know that,

Perimeter of a square = 4 × Side

Hence,

4 × Length of side of the square field = 80

Length of Side = 80/4 = 20 yards

We know that,

Area of a square = side × side

Thus,

Area of the square field = 20 × 20 = 400 sq yards
