What are metric units of Area?

Square meter (or metre)

Area is length times width.

A square metre would be about the size of a teacherís desk https://bettingsiteonline.co.tz/football-betting-tips. A square metre in area does not have to be a square. 

A single bed would also have the area of a square metre even though it is rectangular in shape. 

If a room has a wall three by five metres, the area of the wall would be 15 square metres. If a floor has a length of five metres and a width of  seven metres, the area would be 30 square metres.

Larger Areas:

An area 100 metres by 100 metres would be a hectare, or 10,000 square metres. That is an area the size of two football fields placed side by side www.bettingsiteonline.co.tz/football-betting-tips. If one were to take 10 football fields and place them end to end along one side of a square and place 20 football fields side by side along the other side of a square, the total area enclosed by the 200 football fields would be about one square kilometre.

There are 100 hectares in a square kilometre.
