There is no possible way to. You can only add up all the sides to get the perimeter.---It is not impossible. You can get the perimeter from area very easily.First, you find the square root of the area, which will be the length of each side (assuming it is a square).Then, once you've found the length of each side, you multiply it by 4, and you should have the perimeter. (:

Perimeter and area have a relationship but the shape of the space and area together determine the perimeter. A circle has the maximum Area for a given perimeter -or- the minimum perimeter for a given area. Area = pi * radius * radius and perimeter = 2*pi * radius for a circle; perimeter = 2* pi * square root of (Area/pi) With regards to square and rectangles the closer a shape is to square the greater the Area for a given perimeter -or- the minimum the perimeter to a given area. Square Area = side * side and periemter = 4 * side So perimeter = 4 * square root (Area) To solve for a rectangle, you must know ONE side to solve as the relationship between the Area and the perimeter is change as the relative size of side1 and side 2 changes. Rectangle Area = side1 * side2 and perimeter = 2 * (side1 + side2) so perimeter = 2 * (Area/side1 + side1) or 2 * (Area/side2 + side2)

depends how big the square is and you would only know if the edge lengths are given

You'd need to know one of the sides.

You don't have enough information. If the area in question is a circle, the perimeter (circumfrence) is about 31.7 inches. If it is a square, the perimeter is about 35.8 inches. and if the area is a very long and thin 80 inches by one inch, the perimeter is 162 inches. You need to know the shape; even though many shapes might have an area equal to 80 square inches, the perimeter will vary depending on shape.

You can't only using the perimeter. You have to know length and width.

That's oddly worded. You can't find the area of a perimeter. Either way, we need to know how many sides there are. A square with 6-inch sideshas a perimeter of 24 inches and an area of 36 square inches.

If a square has sides of length x, it's perimeter must be 4x. Therefore the length of one of those sides is the perimeter divided by 4. Square this number (multiply it by itself) to get the area of the square.

It is impossible

For a square, the area is always 1/4 of the perimeter squared. Or one side squared.

Perimeter and area have a relationship but the shape of the space and area together determine the perimeter. A circle has the maximum Area for a given perimeter -or- the minimum perimeter for a given area. Area = pi * radius * radius and perimeter = 2*pi * radius for a circle; perimeter = 2* pi * square root of (Area/pi) With regards to square and rectangles the closer a shape is to square the greater the Area for a given perimeter -or- the minimum the perimeter to a given area.

Rectangle Area = side1 * side2 and perimeter = 2 * (side1 + side2) so perimeter = 2 * (Area/side1 + side1) or 2 * (Area/side2 + side2)

Assuming that you want to minimise the perimeter, then use a square. Its side length is, of course, given by the square root of the area.
