## Related Questions The area of a square is a function of the perimeter of the square. It depends. 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. Perimeter is length or distance (inches, feet, meters). Area is square units (length2 : square inches, square feet, square meters), so to say that one is larger than another is not relevant. If it's a 1 by 1, then the perimeter is 4 and the area is 1. But if the square is 5 by 5, then it has a perimeter of 20 and an area of 25. It depends, good luck. The closer you get to a perfect square, the smaller the perimeter. A 6x6 square will have a 24 perimeter. A 36x1 will have the largest perimeter. The area is the same, but the length has 'stretched' to cover a larger perimeter. Perimeter is length (units feet, centimeters, etc.) Area is length2 (square feet, square centimeters etc.). But if you want to disregard the units, you can find triangles which perimeter is larger, smaller or even 'equal' to area, depending on scale.Take a 3,4,5 right triangle. The perimeter = 3+4+5= 12 units. Area = 3*4/2 = 6 square units. Now double the sides.Perimeter = 6 + 8+ 10 = 24 units. Area = 6*8/2 = 24 square units (the numbers are equal). Scaling it larger, then the valueof the area (in square units) will be larger than the perimeter value (in straight units). Sometimes. Experiment with a small square and with a large square (though any shape rectangle will do). A square of 4 x 4 has a perimeter of 16, and an area of 16. A smaller square has more perimeter than area. A larger square has more area than perimeter.   11 x 12 rectangle has a larger perimeter = 46 units The 132 square unit area will give a square a perimeter of 45.9565 units a square has a perimeter but a square isnt a perimeter. so no a square isnt a perimeter Each of the four squares, combined, must have a perimeterwhich adds up to that of the larger square. Since the larger square has a perimeter of 24, so must these squares. However, since we are placing them next to each other, the 2 sides of each square facing other sides do not count. Each individual square has a perimeter of 12, so that makes 48. Subtracting the lengths of the sides placed adjacent to each other (8 sides x a length of 3 = 24), we get a perimeter of 24, the perimeter of the larger square. Because the perimeters are equal, there is no room left for another square without overlapping. Perimeter is in feet and not in square feet Perimeter of [ 16 x 26 ] rectangle = 16 + 16 + 26 + 26 = 84-ft . Perimeter of a 20-ft square = 4 x 20 = 80-ft . The rectangle has the greater perimeter.  36 square units. You can't express a perimeter in square units; a perimeter is a length expressed in ordinary units. If the perimeter of this square is 24 units then the answer above is correct. perimeter of a square is 4x square that term (4x)(4x)and it gives you 16x2 The perimeter of a square is the sum of the four equal sides.   If the area is a square the perimeter is 508.87m. The formula for the perimeter of a square is P equals 4 times a. 'P' represents the perimeter, and 'a' represents a side of the square. Perimeter of a square = 4*side. So perimeter of 6x6 square = 4*6 = 24 units.   ###### Math and ArithmeticAlgebraGeometry Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC. All Rights Reserved.
