you divide the area by four and now you can find the perimeter

For a square yes. If square root the area, you will get the length of a side. Times this by 4 to get the perimeter. E.g. Area=64cm2 64(square rooted)=8cm 8 X 4=32cm Perimeter=32cm

Perimeter = 4 times the square root of the area.

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)
