Hi Mia12 really? You did this method? Just 12 x 3 = 36in²? You did that? What grade are you in now? I'm in 8th grade.

Mia, the answer is 36. You don't do 3 x 3 and then 36 / 9. It's just 36in²

Great answer Mia. Andrew, just shut it.

Who's Andrew? I dont see an andrew here Sana.

Evan!!!!!!!!! We're talking about square units, not cubic units.

No, Evan, it's squares. You would use the little "two" to indicate a squared answer. A cubic unit would be the little "three".

Therefore, your answer that you put down is correct but without the little three.

Dude, Evan, we're talking about cubic units not squares? What kind of a tool are you? Seriously, we're talking about SQUARES. S-Q-U-A-R-E-S! Did you read that? SQUARES NOT CUBIC UNITS

will this is how I did it in school

when I was in 7th grade in 5th grade
