Hi KumarAaditya....

The formula for the area of a square is A= s^2.

Since you know that the area is 256.6404, to find the length of one side, you take the square root of the area.  

Square root of 256.6404 is 16.02

16.02 = length of one side

To check your answer you can do:

A = (16.02)^2
A = 256.6404

Below is a study guide on area of different geometric shapes if you need more information.

Hope this helps!
