Enter the total area into the Reverse Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the side length of the square.

Reverse Area Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Reverse Area. 

SL = A ^ {(1/2)}
  • Where SL is the side length of the square
  • A is the total area 

To calculate the side length from the area, take the square root of the area.

How to Calculate Reverse Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Reverse Area.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total area.
    • The total area is given as: 500.
  2. Finally, calculate the Reverse Area using the equation above: 

SL = A ^ (1/2)

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

SL = 500^ (1/2) = 25

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total area = 600

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

SL = A ^ (1/2) = ?
