    Consider a city of 10 square kilometers. A macrocellular system design divides the city up into square cells of 1 square kilometer

    One square kilometer is a unit of the area. A square kilometer can be considered as a square which is one kilometer long and one kilometer wide:

    1\ km^2 = 1\ km \cdot 1\ km = 1000\ m \cdot 1000\ m = 1,000,000\ m^2

    Of course that's OK. But you can also say the area is 2 km by 8 km, or 1 km by 16 km, or 3.2 km by 5 km.

    In general: The product of length and width must equal 16.
