We know that in square all sides are equal

The given side of square = 12 cm

if the side will extended by 4 cm = 12 cm + 4 cm

Length  of new extended square   =16cm

Now we find the area of new square

Area of square               =L²


                                   =16 x 16

Area of square             = 256 cm²
