# A square board has an area of $8\frac{73}{144}\ m^2$. How long is each side of the board?

**Given:**A square board has an area of $8\frac{73}{144}\ m^2$.

**To do:**To find the length of each side of the square.

**Solution:**

Let $a$ be the side of square.

$\Rightarrow a^2=8\frac{73}{144}$

$\Rightarrow a^2=\frac{1152+73}{144}$

$\Rightarrow a^2=\frac{1225}{144}$

$\Rightarrow a=\sqrt{\frac{1225}{144}}$

$\Rightarrow a=\sqrt{\frac{35\times35}{12\times12}}$

$\Rightarrow a=\frac{35}{12}$

Thus, the side of the square is $\frac{35}{12}\ m$.
