| **A piece of wire was bent into a triangle, each side of which is 8 cm. Then the wire was unbent and a square was re-bent from it. What is the area of the resulting square?**

A square is a quadrilateral in which all angles are straight and all sides are equal. The area of a square is equal to the product of its two sides.

1) Determine what the length of the wire, of which the triangle was bent, is equal.

8 * 3 = 24 centimeters.

2) What is the length of one side of the square?

24/4 = 6 centimeters.

3) What is the area of the resulting square?

6 * 6 = 36 cm ^ 2.

Answer: The area of the resulting square is 36 square centimeters.
