# What Is A Square Meter?

A square meter is very basically speaking a square where each side is 1 meter long; so it will be 1m x 1m. This would be one square meter, but to work out the size of something in square meters you need to do a very simple calculation.

To find out the size of something, for example a room, in square meters you need to measure the length of the room and the width (obviously if the room is square the length and width should be the same but just make sure). Once you have these measurements you simply need to times one by the other. So here is an example to show you how it would look in real life:

You have a square room, which you need to buy carpet for. The width and length of the room are the same, since it is square, with both measuring 4 meters. To find out how much carpet to buy you would do the simple sum below:

Length (4m) x Width (4m) = total (16m squared). You would therefore need to buy a roll of carpet, which is 16 meters squared.

This is a very simple calculation and can be used in the same way for other four-sided shapes such as a rectangle. When using this same technique with a rectangle it is even more important that you make sure the width and length are carefully measured as rectangles have two very different measurements for length and width. The accuracy of this measurement will affect the whole sum (if measuring for a carpet or tiles, this kind of mistake can prove very costly).

A Square Meter is the AREA of an object measured in meters.  It is also 1 meter long by 1 meter wide (a real square). In a rectangle, it is the length of the rectangle in meters times its width in meters. In a circle, it is the unit pi times the radius squared with the radius measured in meters. If you use any other measurement, such as cm or feet, then you must convert to meters before calculating the square meter of an object.
An example of:  A rectangle 3 meters wide by 4 meters long = 3m X 4m =12 SQUARE meters.
A circle whose radius is 4 meters = pi (3.14159) X 4 X 4 = 50.2654 SQ meters.

I think this is the right answer! Thanks

A meter square (also known as square meter) is a standard unit for measuring area of the object. The unit is derived from standard International (SI) and is usually used for measuring the areas of squares. For example, a land in square shape has the length and width of 70 meters. The area of square would be 70*70=4900 square meters. It has various multiples and submultiples for example a square kilometers equals one million times a square meter.

It is square with 4 sides equalling 1 meter

One "square" meter is the same thing as one meter "squared "

any number that is "squared" is a measurement of area .  This can also be expressed as number2

if this is box 1 meter long
______
|   |
|   |   and 1 meter tall
|   |
in order to measure the area of space the box takes up, you have to multiply LENGTH and HEIGHT  . In other words,  multiply
1 meter X 1 meter = 1 meter 2

1 meter2  =  1 square meter  =  1 meter square  =  1 meter squared

Length of 1 meter, multiplied by breadth of 1 meter
