Hello.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The curve y = x^{2}is a parabola that looks like this:

I have a shape Square that looks like this:

What I am noticing is that if I consider the equation y = x^{2}and also the shape Square, I find that there is no connection between them but the equation y = x^{2}is pronounced as x-square.

Can someone please clarify the link between Square shape and the equation y = x^{2}?

Thanks!
