Because the equation of the area of a rectangle is

Area=length*width

When you multiply length by width, you are not only multiplying the numerical values, you are also multiplying the labels. A label multiplied by itself becomes squared, just like numbers multiplied by themselves.

For example, the length of the rectangle could be 3 centimeters (cm) and the width could be 2 cm. To find the area, plug these into the equation:

Area=3cm*2cm

Area=(3*2)(cm*cm)

Area=6 cm squared

Can a square and a rectangle have the same area?

Yes. For example, a 4x4 square would have an area of 16 units squared. A 2x8 rectangle would also have an area of 16 units squared. Also, every rectangle is a square too though every square is not a rectangle. So, a 4x4 square is also a rectangle which means both have the same area.
