We have learnt how to change units like mm to cm, or cm to km

Let’s learn how to change square units as well

##
**
Hectares
**

Hectare is also a unit used to measure area.

1 hectare actually means 1 hecto metre square

1 hectare = 1 hector metre
^{
2
}

1 hectare = 1 hm
^{
2
}

Also,

1 hm = 100 m

(1 hm)
^{
2
}
= (100 m)
^{
2
}

1 hm
^{
2
}
= 100 × 100 m
^{
2
}

1 hm
^{
2
}
= 10,000 m
^{
2
}

∴ 1 hectare = 10,000 m
^{
2
}

Lets take some examples

##
**
Find area of rectangle in m
**^{

}

^{ 2 }

Length =
*
l
*
= 50 cm

Breadth = b = 2000 cm

Area =

l
*
× b

= 50 × 2000

= 1,00,000 cm
^{

}

= 1,00,000 × (1/100)
^{

}
m
^{

}

= 1,00,000 × 1/10,000 m
^{

}

= 10 m
^{

##
Find area of rectangle in cm
^{

}

Length =
*
l
*
= 2 m

= 2 × 100 cm

= 200 cm

Breadth = b = 10 cm

Area =
*
l
*
× b

= 200 × 10

= 2000 sq. cm

= 2000 cm

**

Length =

= 500 cm

= 500 × 1/100 cm (As 1 cm = 1/100 m)

= 5 m

Breadth = b = 3 m

Area =
*
l
*
× b

= 5 × 3

= 15 sq. m

= 15 m

^{ 2 }

^{
}

Length =

l
*
= 2 km

= 2 × 1000 m (1 km = 1000 m)

= 2000 m

Breadth = b = 30 m

Area =
*
l
*
× b

= 2,000 × 30

= 60,000 sq. m

= 60,000 m
^{

}

##
Find area of rectangle in km
^{

}

^{
}

Length =
*
l
*
= 2000 m

= 2000 × 1/1000 km (1m = 1/1000 km )

= 2 km

Breadth = b = 4 km

Area =
*
l
*
× b

= 2 × 4

= 8 sq. km

= 8 km

##
**
Find area of rectangle in hectare
**

**
**

Length =

l
*
= 6 km

= 6 × 1000 m (1km = 1000 m)

= 6000 m

Breadth = b = 10 m

Area =
*
l
*
× b

= 6000 × 10

= 60,000 m
^{

}

= 60,000 × 1/10,000 hectare (1m
^{

= 1/10,000 hectare)

= 6 hectare

##
**
Find area of rectangle in hectare
**

Breadth = b = 4 km

Area =

= 12 km
^{

= 12 × 10,00,000 m
^{

= 10,00,000 m)

= 1,20,00,000 m
^{
