Area is a quantity that expresses the extent of a two-dimensional surface or shape , or planar lamina , in the plane . Area can be understood as the amount of material with a given thickness that would be necessary to fashion a model of the shape, or the amount of paint necessary to cover the surface with a single coat. [ 1 ] It is the two-dimensional analog of the length of a curve (a one-dimensional concept) or the volume of a solid (a three-dimensional concept). The area of a shape can be measured by comparing the shape to squares of a fixed size. [ 2 ] In the International System of Units (SI), the standard unit of area is the square metre (written as m 2 ), which is the area of a square whose sides are one metre long. [ 3 ] A shape with an area of three square metres would have the same area as three such squares. In mathematics , the unit square is defined to have area one, and the area of any other shape or surface is a dimensionless real number .
