• Last Updated : 26 Apr, 2021

A square is a flat shape, in one plane, defined by four points at the four corners. A square has four sides all of equal length, and four corners, all right angles (90 degree angles). A square is a kind of rectangle.
Given a square of side and number of folds . The task is to find the area of square after F-th fold.
The folding of square is as follows:

1. In 1st folding, fold the square from left to right side in the form a triangle.
2. In 2nd folding, fold the square from up to down side.
3. In 3rd folding, again fold the square from left to right side.

Examples:

```Input : N = 4, F = 2
Output : 2
Explanation:
Initially square side is 4 x 4
After 1st folding, square side becomes 4 x 2
After 2nd folding, square side becomes 2 x 2
Thus area equals 2 x 2 = 4.

Input : N = 100, F = 6
Output : 156.25```

Approach

• Initially calculate the area of the square before folding.
• After each folding, the area of square reduces by half. That is, area = area/2.
• So, we finally divide the area of square by pow(2, F)

Below is the implementation of above approach:

## C++

 `// CPP program to find``// the area of the square``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to calculate area of square after``// given number of folds``double` `areaSquare(``double` `side, ``double` `fold)``{``    ``double` `area = side * side;` `    ``return` `area * 1.0 / ``pow``(2, fold);``}` `// Driver Code``int` `main()``{``    ``double` `side = 4, fold = 2;` `    ``cout << areaSquare(side, fold);` `    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// Java program to find the area of the square``class` `GFG``{` `    ``// Function to calculate area of square``    ``// after given number of folds``    ``static` `double` `areaSquare(``double` `side,``                            ``double` `fold)``    ``{``        ``double` `area = side * side;``    ` `        ``return` `area * ``1.0` `/ Math.pow(``2``, fold);``    ``}``    ` `    ``// Driver Code``    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String []args)``    ``{``        ``double` `side = ``4``, fold = ``2``;``    ` `        ``System.out.println(areaSquare(side, fold));``    ``}``}` `// This code is contributed``// by aishwarya.27`

## Python3

 `# Python3 program to find the area``# of the square` `# Function to calculate area of``# square after given number of folds``def` `areaSquare(side, fold) :``        ``area ``=` `side ``*` `side``        ``ans ``=` `area ``/` `pow``(``2``, fold)``        ``return` `ans` `# Driver Code``if` `__name__ ``=``=` `"__main__"` `:``        ` `    ``side ``=` `4``    ``fold ``=` `2``    ``print``(areaSquare(side, fold))` `# This code is contributed by Ryuga`

## C#

 `// C# program to find the area of the square``using` `System;` `class` `GFG``{``    ` `// Function to calculate area of square``// after given number of folds``static` `double` `areaSquare(``double` `side,``                         ``double` `fold)``{``    ``double` `area = side * side;` `    ``return` `area * 1.0 / Math.Pow(2, fold);``}` `// Driver Code``public` `static` `void` `Main()``{``    ``double` `side = 4, fold = 2;` `    ``Console.Write(areaSquare(side, fold));``}``}` `// This code is contributed``// by Akanksha Rai`
