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 side length from 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:

- First, determine the total area.
- The total area is given as: 500.

- 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)** = ?**
