A contractor is tiling a square patio that has an area of 136 square feet. What is the approximate side length of the patio? Round to the nearest tenth of a foot. Show the steps without using a calculator.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
area = length *width
for a square length=width
given the area, to get the length, we find the square root of the area
sq root 144=12
sq root 121=11
therefore sq root 136 is between 11 and 12
sq root 136= 11.662
to the nearest tenth =11.7 feet
