Square is a special case of a rectangle and the same formula may be used to find the perimeter

yes

I think so

To find the perimeter of any rectangle or square use 2L + 2W or L + L + W + W

Yes. But using P=4s is easier with a square.

When you think about it for a while, they're really NOT different. The rectangle formula needs a bit more detail, because its sides don't all have the same length, so its length and its width have to be handled separately. But the rectangle formula works perfectly well if you use it to find the perimeter of a square.

The formula for the perimeter of a rectangle with length L and width W is P = 2*(L + W) In a square, the length and width are the same. So L = W And so A = 2*(L + L) = 2*(2L) = 4*L

It is the sum of their 4 sides

The formula of the rectangle is multiplying the length and the width to get the area. You can add all the four sides so as to find the perimeter of the rectangle.

P = 2 (l + w)

In order to find the perimeter of a 3D rectangle you must gather the lengths of the known sides, calculate the missing rectangular values, and use the formula for perimeter.
