Hello. I was just hoping someone here could explain to me why, when defining the area of an object, the answer is squared or cubed.
I use A = 4*2 to find area of a 4" 2" rectangle, and my answer is supposed to be 8^2 (64?); Is that to say there are 64 little units of the given measurement in my rectangle? I guess a cubed number would then be used for the volume of 3 dimensional object? After writing this, I'm almost certain this is it; It makes so much sense, but I just don't know. This has been bothering me forever, and a quick explanation would be much appreciated. Thanks.
