Simple In both queries they mentioned sides of 28 and 2 but how many squares to fit in
Hence, 28 square divided by 2 square which is 144
28^2/2^2 = 144



Be careful with calculations..
12*12=144 but we have here 14*14, which is 196

1 jin = 14 daks
So, 2 jin = 2*14 = 28 daks

Required squares = 28*28 / 2*2 = 196 (E)

Be careful with calculations:

Take area / area instead of length / length to get the correct answer (14 is the trap answer, 14 x 14 is the correct answer)

#Given 14 Daks =1 Jin
Needed the number of squares with a side length of 2 daks can fit in a square
with a side length of 2 jin....
2 Jin= 14*2=28 Daks, Hance two squares (28 daks & 2 daks)
Number of squares needed=28^2/2^2=196 (answer)
