the area of a square is 64 square inches.what s the length of each side.

area= s^2
64=s^2
take the square root of EACH side. 
A = s^2
64 = s^2
64 = 8 * 8
Note: I took the square root of 64 to get the answer. Each side is 8 inches long. 
Take the square root of both sides
A=s^2
remember that a square all sides are the same therefore it is s*s or s^2
64=s^2
square root of 64=8
A=8*8
A=64
