## Answers

Due to the classifications of a square, all sides of the room are congruent, in other words, all sides are equal.
Knowing that the area of a square is equal to base times height (A=bh), or base times base since height and base are equal A=b•b or A=b^2, start plugging in the values.
Area = 22500
b=?
22,500=b^2
Take the square root of both sides to "undo" 'b' squared
Sqrt (22,500) = Sqrt(b^2)
b = 150
Each side is 150 feet
