A square cannot have an area of 36 feet since that is a measure of distance, not area. If, the square had an area of n SQUARE feet, then each side would be of length sqrt(n) feet. In that case, the perimeter would have been 4*(length of side) = 4*sqrt(n) feet.

The perimeter is: (4 sides x 9.2 feet = 36.8 feet). The area is: 84.64 square feet.

Area of square = 4 x 4 = 16 sq ft; area of rectangle = 3 x 2 = 6 sq ft. Area of the square is two-and-two-thirds that of the rectangle.

Suppose the length of a side in the original square was S feet, so that the original area was S2 square feet. The incresed side is (S+4) feet [not feets!] giving a new area of (s+4)2 sq feet. So (S+4)2 = S2 + 64 S2 + 8x + 16 = S2 + 64 8S = 48 and so S = 6 ft

Total area = 4 square feet.The cube has 6 faces.Area of each face is (4/6) square foot.Area = square of the length of each edge.Length of each edge = square root of the area of each face.Length = sqrt(4/6 square foot) = 0.8165 ft = 9.798 inches (rounded)
