How do you draw a shape on an 8x8 grid that is 14cm squared?
Hello janeWelcome to Math Help Forum!
You don't give us much information here. Is the grid marked in 1 cm squares? What sort of shape? Obviously, if it is in 1 cm squares, you could draw a rectangle 2 cm by 7cm. Or a triangle with a base of 7 cm and a height of 4 cm.
Can you tell us a bit more?

Thank you for your help Grandad. This was in my son's homework and that was the exact question with just a square grid which was 8 by 8. Each square was not 1cm which made it tricky. We will try the 2 by 7 square approach.
thanks again
