Then what do you measure it with?
The measure of a perimeter can be any positive number.
36 square units. You can't express a perimeter in square units; a perimeter is a length expressed in ordinary units. If the perimeter of this square is 24 units then the answer above is correct.
Given a perimeter of 18 units, the resulting altitude is 5.2 (5.19615) units.
Perimeter: 6+8+10 = 24 units
in area you are measuring the capacity. Volume has a 3 because it is lengthxwidthxhight area is only lengthxwidthImproved Answer:Because the perimeter is the outside measurements of a given area which are in linear units and the measurements inside a given area are in square units.
Any measure must always be written in units unless it is a pure ratio.
3*15 = 45 units.
39*3 = 117 units
