a square

Knowing the area doesn't tell you the perimeter. There are an infinite number of different sizes and shapes with different perimeters that all have the same area. The shortest possible perimeter for any area is a circle. The shortest possible perimeter for any area with straight sides is a square. And also by the way, there are many different units for area. "Feet" is not one of them. "Square feet" is.

Area: 4*4 = 16 square uints Perimeter: 4+4+4+4 = 16 units

It is different for each shape. A perimeter is the distance around an object and the area is the square units it takes up.

Perimeter is the distance around an object and area is the amount of space/volume in an object (square,rectangle,triangle)
