Practice problems of the area of a shape

The area is the quantity that expresses the extent of a two-dimensional shape. The area can be understood as the amount of paint necessary to cover the surface with a single coat. The area of a shape can be measured by comparing the shape to squares of a fixed size 1 m^2 or 1 cm^2 etc. Every unit of length has a corresponding unit of area. We can measure areas in square meters (m^2), square centimeters (cm^2), square millimeters (mm^2), square kilometers (km^2), square feet (ft^2), square yards (yd^2), square miles (mi^2), and so forth.

The area of a shape is the “space enclosed within the perimeter or the boundary” of the given shape.
