Best Answer

If the sides are in cm, then you would multiply the length of the shape by the width, which equals area.

And area is in the unit of the sides but squared. So in this example it would be cm2.

=========================================

The answer to the question is: You can't. The perimeter doesn't tell you what the area is.

You can have two different drawings with the same perimeter and different areas,

or with the same area and different perimeters. Even if they're both triangles, or

both rectangles, etc.

You can't take perimeter and 'work out' area from it.

A square with a perimeter of 24 cm has an area of: 36 cm2

A rectangle with sides of 1cm and 6cm has an area of 6 cm2 and a perimeter of 14 cm. A rectangle with sides of 2cm and 3cm has the same area but its perimeter is 10 cm.

Area of square = 81 cm2 so side of square = 9 cm and then perimeter = 4*side = 36 cm.

Perimeter = 24 cm so length of each side = 24/4 = 6 cm and so area = 6 cm * 6 cm = 36 cm2

If the perimeter of the square is 60 centimetres, each side is equal to 15 centimetres. Therefore, the area of the square would be 15 x 15 = 225 cm2.
