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 of a square is the sum of the lengths of its sides, while the area is the square of one of its sides. That is, if each side is S units long, then Perimeter = 4*S units and Area = S*S square units.

"Square centimeters" is a measurement of area. "Centimeters square" describes a square shape X centimeters on each side. "4 square centimeters" would be an area 2 cm wide by 2 cm long (or an equal area in any shape. "4 centimeters square" defines a shape having four 90 degree angles and 4 sides of 4 cm each, which has an area of 16 square centimeters.

A rectangle 8 centimeters by 15 centimeters has a perimeter of 46 centimeters (2l + 2h) and an area of 120 centimeters (l * h).

A paralallogram with a perimeter = 13 units can be made to "lean" over until its area becomes 5 square units.Also:A rectangle with a long side of 5.608495283 and a short side of 0.8915047169 will have a perimeter of 13 units and an area of 5 square units.Also:An isosceles triangle with say 2 legs of 5.5943 and the 3rd leg of 1.8114 will have a perimeter of 13 units and an area of 5 square units.So the answer is that there are many shapes that will satisfy the perimeter and area given.
