Let's say the side length of a square is x. The square's area is just x2, and its perimeter is 4x. If we want the perimeter to be equal to the area, 4x = x2, so x = 4.

Either. The perimeter of a square with area 1 square unit is 4, a rational value. The perimeter of a square with area 2 square unit is 4*sqrt(2), an irrational value.

The area of square is the square of one of its sides, which are all equal. To find the value of a side, take the square root of the area. In this case the square root of 49cm2 is 7cm. The perimeter is the sum of all four sides of the square, so the perimeter of a square with an area of 49cm2 is 7+7+7+7 = 28, or 4x7 = 28.

Since the largest area would be obtained by having adjacent sides equal to each other, and since a square is at least technically an equilateral rectangle, divide the perimeter of 72 by 4 to get sides of 18 and an area of 324.

The perimeter of a square is equal to 4 times the value of one side. So P = 4s 24 = 4s 24/4 = 4s/4 6= s The length of one side is 6 meters.

The area and perimeter cannot be equal because the perimeter is a linear measure while an area is a square measure. However, it is perfectly possible for them to have the same numerical value. For example, a 3cm by 6 cm square has a perimeter of 2*(3+6) = 18 cm and an area or 3*6 = 18 sq cm.

The absolute value of the perimeter doesn't change, only the unit value which increases by a factor of 3.

This question cannot be answered sensibly. A square km is a measure of area, with dimensions [L2]. A length has dimensions [L]. Basic dimensional analysis teaches that you cannot convert between measures with different dimensions such as these without additional information. It is not possible to determine the perimeter of the rectangle either. Assuming the length is greater than the breadth, the length can have any value at all as long as it is at least equal to sqrt(319) km ie 17.86 km. Consequently the perimeter can be any value greater than (or equal to) 4 times the square root of 319 (in km). Length = 17.85 km gives breadth = 17.85 km and perimeter = 71.44 km or length = 178.5 km, breadth = 1.785 km and perimeter = 360.78 km or length = 1785 km, breadth =0.1785 km and perimeter = 3572.5 km etc.

An acre is a unit of area, but its actual shape may vary. It doesn't have to be shaped like a square. The more oblong the shape, the greater the perimeter becomes. If it is a perfect square, however, then its perimeter in feet will be four times the square root of its area in square feet. An acre is equal to 43,560 square feet. The square root of that is 208.71, so the perimeter is 834.84 feet if the acre is square. The minimum value of perimeter for a given area will always occur with a circular shape. Area = Pi x d2/4, perimeter = Pi x d, so for 1 acre perimeter comes to 739.9 ft.

The perimeter of a square is equal to 4 times the value of one side. So P = 4s 24 = 4s 24/4 = 4s/4 6= s The length of one side is 6 meters.

An acre is an area itself, so a 'square acre' doesn't mean anything. The circumference or perimeter depends on the shape of the acre. The smallest value will be for a circle. For an acre which is a perfect square shape, each side equal, the perimeter is 278.3 yards or 834.9 feet
