## Concepts Covered

The area is the amount of space a 2-dimensional figure occupies. The area is the entire space without gaps inside the border of the figure. All 2-D shapes have an area. A square with a side length of 1 unit is a square unit. The area is measured by the number of square units that fully occupy a space without any gaps. The number of square units it takes to completely occupy a shape is its area.
