how do i figure out this equation? Joy knits a square blanket that has an area of 1,500 square inches. What is the approximate length of each side of the blanket? HELP !! Ms Sue!
a 16 in b 27in 39 in 42 in i don't understand how to solve this!

Math 
Steve,
if the square had 16 in^2, each side would be 4 in, since 16 = 4^2
so, your blanket is √1500 = 38.73 in
so, I'd pick 39in
