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

**Solution:**

Given that

Total fencing = Perimeter of the square field

= 80 yards

We know that,

The perimeter of a square = 4 × Side

Hence,

4 × Length of the side of the square field

= 80

Length of Side = 80/4

= 20 yards

We know that, area of a square

= side × side

Area of the square field = 20 × 20

= 400 square yards

Therefore,

the area of the square field is 400 square yards.

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

**Summary:**

The total fencing around a square field is 80 yards. The field has an area of 400 square yards.
