The perimeter of a square is four times the length of any side. The area is the length of a side multiplied by itself (which is to say, squared).

Area = Legth x Width In a square, Length = Width Therefore Area = Length x Length (or Width x Width) Area = Length squared Length = Square Root of 800 Perimeter = 4 x length Perimeter = 4 x Square Root of 800 Perimeter = 113.14

The first step to answering this question is convert from area to length. The area of a square is L2 where L is the length of one side. In this case, L2=81, so L=9 The perimeter of a square is calculated by the expression 4L So the perimeter of this square is 9x4=36cm

perimeter = (5+5+12+12)= 34 area = (5*12) = 60 squared

A perimeter is a measure of length and so cannot be 16 square centimetres - which is a measure of area. As it happens, a square with a perimeter of 16 centimetres will have sides of 4 cm and so an area of 16 square centimetres.

If the area of the square is equal to 256 centimetres squared, then each side of the square would be sqrt(256) = 16.Therefore, given that a square has four sides of equal length, the perimeter of the square would be 16 x 4 = 64 centimetres.

For a square, the area is always 1/4 of the perimeter squared. Or one side squared.

The perimeter of a square of known area is 4 x sqrt area, in this case 4 x 10 = 40 cm.

A square with a perimeter of 48 meters has an area of 144 meters squared.

The perimeter of a square, if it has an area of 25 cm, is: 20 cm

40cmIf the square has an area of 100 square centimetres, then each side is 10 centimetres long. With four sides, this gives a perimeter of 10 x 4 = 40 centimetres.

The perimeter is 600 feet.
