the base of the great pyramid is a square with an area of 571536 ft squared. If one of the sides of a similar figure is 5 cm what is the area of the figure?
How can I solve this?

The only figure similar to a square is another square. If the side of the square is 5cm, then the area is length times width, which would be 5 * 5 since all sides of a square are equal. So what's 5 * 5?? And don't forget to write cm squared after.

this symbol * means multiply, I saw it on a a computer

5p + 28 = 88 p

Hey Kate the anwser to your question is 25cm squared
