We will discuss here how to find the perimeter of a square. Perimeter of a square is the total length (distance) of the boundary of a square.
We know that all the sides of a square are equal.
Perimeter of the square ABCD
= AB + BC + CD + AD
= 2 cm + 2 cm + 2 cm + 2 cm
= (2 × 4) cm
= 8 cm
Perimeter of a square is 4 times of s side.
Perimeter of a square = 4 × length of a side.
Let us consider some of the examples on perimeter of a square:
1. Each side of a square is 2.5 cm.
Find its perimeter.
Side = 2.5 cm
Therefore, perimeter of a square = 4 × length of a side
= (4 × 2.5) cm
= 10 cm
2. Find the perimeter of a square shaped playground whose each side length 12 m.
We know a square has four equal sides. So, we can easily calculate the perimeter of a square.
The formula for finding the perimeter of a square is:
P = 4 × length of a side
= 4 × 12 m
= 48 m
3. Each sides of a paper sheet is 14 ft. Find its perimeter.
Given: Side length is 14 ft.
Perimeter of a square is = 4 × side
= 4 × 14 ft
= 56 ft
