A square of area 100 cm squared, has the dimensions 10 X 10(length X Width or four sides of length ten).
The perimeter is equal to length of sides times number of sides.
Perimeter:10 times 4=40cm

With a square with a side of 2, the perimeter is 8 while the area is 4. With a square with a side of 10, the perimeter is 40 while the area is 100. Usually, though, you'll find that the area is larger than the perimeter. Find the square root of the area, and multiply by 4. If the area is 100, the square root would be 10 (since 10x10= 100) That 10 is the length of one side. Squares have 4 sides of equal length, so 10x4= 40 for the perimeter. Make sense? BTW, works for cm, inches, feet, miles or smoots- does not matter. Answer 100 ---- If the perimeter of a square is 40 meters, then each side has lenght 10 meters. This is because the formula for perimeter is 4L where L is the lenght. Now, the area is L2 which is 102 =100 40cmIf the square has an area of 100 square centimetres, then each side is 10 centimetres long. With four sides, this gives a perimeter of 10 x 4 = 40 centimetres. Area of a square = side^2 10,000 = side^2 100 = side Perimeter = 4(side) = 4 x 100 = 400 cm  The square root of 100 is 10, so the edges of the square are 10 meters in length. As there are 4 edges then the perimeter will measure 10*4 = 40 meters It is: 4*10 = 40 units of measurements The area for a square is length squared. so if we have L2=100, then square root of 100 is length which is 10. The perimeter of a square is the distance around the square, and if we add 4 lengths (because all lengths in a square are the same), we get 10x4 which is 40.  Area of small square = 1cm * 1cm = 1 cm2 Area of larger square = 10cm * 10cm = 100 cm2 Number of small squares in larger square = 100/1 = 100. it has 100 and each side of the perimeter is 25 ###### Math and ArithmeticGeometry Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
