# Examples of area of plane shapes

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. Areas can be measured in square metres (m^2), square centimetres (cm^2), square millimetres (mm^2), square kilometres (km^2), square feet (ft^2), square yards (yd^2), square miles (mi^2), and so forth.#### Number of problems found: 825
