Lets test a different hypothesis. Maybe it is possible that the area of a square can be determined using a ratio based on the length of one side. Create a graph that shows the ratio of the (side of a square)/(area of a square) as a function of the length of any side (it is a square, all sides are the same). You could graph it as y=length/area

For a 1″ square, the ratio of side/area is _____________________________

For a 5″ square, the ratio is______________________________

For a 0.1″ square, the ratio is_________________________

Can we calculate the area of a square using a ratio of one side? Does this hypothesis hold true for all sizes of squares?
