Best Answer

The area of a square is given by multiplying length by width. Since these are equal, it is the length-squared. Thus, if the area is 256^2 square feet, then the length must be 256 ft.

On the other hand, if your question is:

Area = 256 sq ft., what is the length? Then the answer is 16 ft.

This, by the way, is the relevance of the square root in geometry.
