Please help. Need to write a question using a radical expression in real life

There is a building with a square base. If the area of the base of this building is 250,000ft^2 then what is the length of one of the sides of the building's base.

work:

$\displaystyle A=250000$

$\displaystyle s^2=A\quad\Longrightarrow\quad \boxed{s=\sqrt{A}}\quad\Longrightarrow\quad s=$$\displaystyle \sqrt{250000}\quad\Longrightarrow\quad s=500$
