## Area

Area is the quantity that expresses the extent of a two-dimensional figure or shape, or planar lamina, in the plane.

If we have a 1 meter long by 1 meter wide lot, the total lot area is 1 metre square.

- 1 centimetre square (1cm²) = 100 millimetres square (100mm²)
- 1 metre square (1m²) = 10,000 centimetres square (10,000cm²)
- 1 kilometre square (1mk²) = 1,000,000 metres square (1,000,000m²)
