Q1: The length of a side is 6
In school i was taught that this sort of question is always something times itself. so, say, if you see 9 in a square, and it tells you to how many squares are on the side, then you should go 3 times 3 and figure that out. at the end you have 9. I know 36cm2 is 6 times 6. so each side has 6.
