    The solution cannot be written as a ratio of two integers, the solution is irrational

    Area of a square

    The formula calculating the area of a square is given as
    A = L^2
    Given the parameters
    A = 150
    Substitute
    150 = L^2
    l = √150
    L= √25 * 6
    L =5√6
    Since the solution cannot be written as a ratio of two integers, the solution is irrational
