Calculate the area and perimeter of a square:
Calculate the area and perimeter of a square with w = 5´ and l = 6´. Be sure to involved units in your answer.
Solution:
A = lw P = 2l + 2w
A = (5)(6) P = 2(5) + 2(6)
A = 30 square feet P = 10 + 12
P = 22 feet
Figure: Square
Above given square is a rectangle having four equal sides, as display above.
The area of a square is computed using the following formula:
A = a^{2}
The perimeter of a square is computed using the following formula:
A = 4a
Area of the square is always expressed in square units, and the perimeter of a square is always expressed in the original units.
