### What is a square meter?

A **square meter** is a way to measure **area**—that’s how much space something takes up. Imagine a square that is 1 meter long on each side. When you multiply the length by the width, like this:

$$

1 \, \text{meter} \times 1 \, \text{meter} = 1 \, \text{square meter}

$$

### Now, what about square feet?

A **square foot** works the same way, but it’s a little smaller. It’s a square that is 1 foot long on each side:

$$

1 \, \text{foot} \times 1 \, \text{foot} = 1 \, \text{square foot}

$$
