# what is the standard unit of area

In the International System of Units (SI), the standard unit of area is the squaremetre (written as m2), which is the area of a square whose sides are one metrelong. A shape with an area of three square metres would have the same area as three such squares.

Every unit of length has a corresponding unit of area, namely the area of a square with the given side length. Thus areas can be measured in square metres (m2), square centimetres (cm2), square millimetres (mm2), square kilometres (km2), square feet (ft2), square yards (yd2), square miles (mi2), and so forth.[11] Algebraically, these units can be thought of as the squares of the corresponding length units.

The SI unit of area is the square metre, which is considered an SI derived unit.[3]
