Question

# If 1 cm represents 5m, what would an area of 6 square cm represent?

Hint- We know $1c{m^2} = 1cm \times 1cm$, given that $1cm = 5m$. Then we replace $1cm \to 5m$, we get $1cm \times 1cm = 5m \times 5m$. To get the value of 6 square cm, we will replace square cm by square m.
Given that $1cm = 5m$
We know that $1c{m^2} = 1cm \times 1cm$
So we can write $1c{m^2} = 25{m^2}$.
$\therefore$6 square cm will be equal to 6 times of $1c{m^2}$.
$\Rightarrow 6 \times 1cm \times 1cm \Rightarrow 6 \times 5m \times 5m$
$\Rightarrow 150{m^2}$
