      It is only unclear to those who have forgotten their elementary school
      arithmetic. The distinction between X square meters and X meters squared
      is (or should be) always made clear at that early stage. It is a very
      useful distinction, particularly as it gives a much better idea of
      the physical extent of an area. 200 meters square is so much more
      easily grasped than 40,000 square meters.
