Trish 's Square Root Scribe Post

Pages 99-1, # 17

QUESTION : Carmen wants to mount an 18 x18 cm square picture on a square board that is four times of the area of the picture.

a) What is the area of the picture?

I answered 324 cm because when you square 18 it totals to 324.

b) What is the area of the board?

For now, I know that the board is 4 times the area of the picture, and so I multiplied 324 to 4 and so the answer is 1296.

c) What are the dimensions of the board?

I answered 36 because if you will find the square root of 1296 the answer will be for sure 36.

If you're having trouble with finding the square root or having troubles with squaring a number, here our some links and videos to help you out.
