A square has all 4 of its perimeter lengths equal. Thus the length of the perimeter divided by 4 will give you the 'unitary' dimension. Multiply this 'unitary' dimension by itself (square it) and the result is the area of the square in question.

A square with a perimeter of 40 inches has sides 10 inches long which will give it an area of 100 inches2

To find the perimeter, you would first find the square root of 7 (because it is a square). This will give you about 2.645751311... Then you would multiply this by 4 (4 sides). The answer would then be 10.58300524... or 10.583 rounded to the nearest thousandth.

A square will. The only shape that can enclose more area with the same perimeter is a circle.

Type your answer here... give the dimensions of the rectangle with an are of 100 square units and whole number side lengths that has the largest perimeter and the smallest perimeter

It is the square root of 12.5 and then times it by 4 to give the perimeter in meters

yes

The perimeter has nothing to do with the area you have to times the width times height times length and that will give you the area of the shape

You cannot find the perimeter unless the rectangle is a regular rectangle (a square) in which case the perimeter is 4 times the square root of the area. With just the area the shape of the rectangle could be any number of shapes with different perimeter, for example, imagine 6 square units 1cm by 1cm arranged in a 1*6 configuration to give a long thin rectangle, the perimeter would be 6+6+1+1=14cm, the same 6 arranged in a 3*2 rectangle would have the same area, but a perimeter of 3+3+2+2=10cm, for this reason a rectangle's perimeter cannot be determined from the area alone.

i think that the biggest one would be 1x100 (area) and 202 (perimeter) but i am not sure

If the area of the square room is 16 m2, then each side must be 4 m. This would give a perimeter of 4 * 4 m or 16 m.

We'll need more information than that, the perimeter of what shape? Give all the information you have.
