Find the areas of the following:

1.2.3.

4.5.What operation could be applied to the area in #5 to get the side length of the square?

A = 2 square units

A = 1 square unit

A = 4 square units

A = 5 square units

A = 1 square unit

- Draw a line segment between the points.
- Make a square with the segment as a side.
- Find the area of the square.
- Take the square root of the area.
