**Damon**, Sunday, September 11, 2011 at 7:36pmarea = length * width

for the square mat s is the length and the width

so

Area of square mat = s*s = s^2 = 8100 cm^2

so s = sqrt(8100) = 90 cm

The area of each of the big rectangular mats is twice the square one , therefore 2*8100 = 16,200 cm^2 and it is 90cm by 180 cm

Lay a square room out with the square mat in upper left, one rectangle sticking out from it right

then three rectangles below those two sticking down

This gives you a square room, 3s * 3 s or 270cm * 270 cm = 72,900 cm^2

50^2 = 2,500 too small

100^2 = 10,000 too big

right answer is 90^2 = 8,100
