Here in this code, we are firstly calculating the area of the square which is ( side*side) as it is given s=14 we are calculating (14*14) as the area.

Next, in the question they have given cost of 7$/cm which means it charges 7$ for every centimeter.

So, we know that our area is 14*14 =196
Now, we are multiplying are with the cost/cm (7$ with area) to get total cost of painting for that area.
s=14
area=s*s

cost=7*area

print(area)

print(cost)

as given in the question Cost=7* area
