Solving Problems
The left hand side is a square picture while the
right hand side is a rectangular picture with area
32 cm and length 8 cm. Find the total area of the
square picture.
Solving Problems
The square picture above is framed in a square frame.
The dimension of the frame is 10 cm x 10 cm. Find
the area of the picture.
The dimension of the cube above is 1 cm x 1 cm x 1 cm.
The volume is 1 x 1 x 1 = 1 cm
Hence, 1 = 1 x 1 x 1 = 1

Square and Cube
To square a number, we multiply the number
by itself.
For example, to square 3, 3 x 3 = 3 = 9
Now, how do you to cube a number?
We multiply the number by itself TWICE.
