If it is an equilateral triangle with 3 equal sides of 4cm then its perimeter is 12cm

P = 4(4) = 16 cm

16cm (4 sides x 4 = 16)

If it is an equilateral triangle with 3 equal sides of 4m then its perimeter is 12cm

It is a distance around a shape, example:Say I have a square in my hands well...you should know that a square has equal sides, right? Each side of that square I have is 4 centimeters so all you do is add up all the sides. Like....4cm+4cm+4cm+4cm=16cm.That is what the perimeter is of THIS square! So basically it's the sum of all the sides of a shape.Perimeter is the sum of all of the sides of a shape.Another way of looking at it is, the perimeter is the distance around an object, if you travel along the "walls".If you go outside to one corner of your house, and walk around the house right along the wall, you have walked the perimeter of the house.

It is: 4+4+4+4 = 16 cm

The perimeter is the addition of the all the sides of the shape. For example if a rectangle has two sides which are 4cm and two sides which are 7cm, then the perimeter will be 4cm+4cm+7cm+7cm. The perimeter would therefore be 22cm. The area of a shape is gotten by multiplying the length and breadth of the shape. For example, in a rectangle witrh the same measurements above, the area will be 4cm x 7cm and that would 28cm. You have to use the square sign but I can't do that here.

Since all four sides are equal in a square, a square with an area of 4cm2 must be 2cm on each side. Therefore, the perimeter is 2cm x 4 = 8cm.

Yes (apart from units):If the side of a square is 4cm then itsperimeter is 4cm + 4cm + 4cm + 4cm = 4 x 4cm = 16cm;area is 4cm x 4cm = 16cm2

For an area measuring 4cm long and 3cm wide, the area is equal to 3cm x 4cm = 12 square cm. The perimeter is simply the sum of all the sides, so is equal to 4+4+3+3 = 14cm.
