Calculate the area and perimeter of a square, Mathematics

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
