We know that every side of a square in the same length, and that the area is equal to the width times the height. Because this is a square, the width and height are equal, so area is equal to the length of one of the sides times itself, or the length of one of the sides squared. So, in order to find the length of one of the sides, you take the square root of the area. The length of the side is equal to both the width and the height. For example, if you have a square with an area of 9, take the square root of 9, which is 3. So the width of that square is 3.

How do you find the height and width knowing only the area?

If the shape is a square, find the square root of the area and that will be the height and the width. Otherwise, you would need to find out more than the area.


How do you find the height when you only have the total square feet and the width?

If you only have square feet, you won't be able to find the height, unless you're mistaking height for length. Area in square feet of a quadrilateral is width times length. To find the length, divide the area by the width.


How do you find length and width of a square showing only the height of the square?

the height is the same as the length and width


How do you find the length and width of a rectangle when you know the area?

you cannot do this; you have area only and two unknowns - lengthand width but only one equation: area = length x width


How do you find the area of a yard using the perimeter in square feet?

You can't only using the perimeter. You have to know length and width.


How is the area of a square related to a rectangle?

Since a square is a rectangle, you can use the formula for the area of a rectangle to calculate the area of a square. The only difference is that length and width will be the same.


How do you find the length of a rectangle knowing ONLY the diagonal and the width?

You square the width and subtract it from the diagonal squared. Then find the square root of this number, this number is now the length.


How do I find the area of a rectangle if I only have the length?

You cannot find the area of a rectangle if you only know its length. You need to know its width too. Then you multiply its length by its width.


How do you find the area of a parallelogram with only the perimeter?

area is length times width


How do i find the length and width if you only know the perimeter?

if it is a square...divide by 4 If it is not a square you cannot find the length and width because it can be short and wide or tall and narrow.


How do you find length and width of a rectangle if only the square footage is known?

It is not possible.


How do you find a square length when you only have the area?

The area of a square is the "length x width" but as these are equal we can put that the area = L2.....where L is the side length of the square. If the value of the area is known then the square root of this figure provides the side length. Example : Area = 36 sq cm, Length L = √36 = 6 cm.


How dO you find the perimeter of a square if it only give you the area?

Square root the area and then times the answer by 4


How do you find the length of a square only using area?

Square Root


How many rectangles have the same area as their perimeter?

The only one I can think of is a square, where Length=Width=4.


How do you find the length of the side of a square with only the area?

To find the area of a square, where all four sides are of equal length, you simply square the length of one side: for example, the area of a square of four inches is sixteen square inches, or 42 in. To find the length of the side of a square when you only know the area, you simply reverse the process, and take the square root of the area. The square root of 16 is four, for example.


When the area of a square is 1300 square yards find the dimensions of the square?

the side is 36.055 yards. in order to find the sides of a square with only the area you would need to find the square-root of that data seeing as the sides of the square are identical and are multiplied by each other to get the area.


How can you calculate the area of a square when you know only its length?

The area of a rectangle is length x width. Since in the case of a square, both are equal, you simply multiply length x length.


How do you find volume if you only know height?

You cannot, to find an unknown, you need at least two knows facts. IE if the length and width give you area, you cannot get the area without BOTH the length and width.


What is the volume of a square when the radius is 5 and the width is 17?

The question is invalid because a square has only surface area and so it does not have a volume or indeed a radius.


How many cubic inches are in 18 X 15?

It is impossible to find volume (what cubic inches measure) using only two numbers which i assume are length and width, which only gives you area in square inches.


If the area of the square is 722in find the radius?

A square doesent have a radius only circles do. :)


Can you find the area of a square if you have the circumference?

Circumfrences are only for circles.


How do you find the side of a square if only the area is given?

The length of each side of a square is numerically equal to the square root of the area.


What would the whole area of Chile be if the length is 3800 km and if the width is only 200 km?

760000 square kilometers
