Perimeter of a Square
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.
In a square all the sides are of equal lengths.
Hence, perimeter of a square = 4l
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.
Solution:
Side
= 2.5 cm
Therefore,
perimeter of a square = 4 × length of a side
= (4 × 2.5) cm
= 10 cm
2. A rope of length 96 m was used to fence a square garden. What is the length of the side of the garden?
Solution:
Perimeter of the garden = Length of the rope = 96 m
We know that perimeter of a square = 4 × length of a side
So, 4 × length of a side = 96 m
Length of a side = \(\frac{96}{4}\) m = 24 m
Therefore, length of the one side of the square shape garden is 24 m.
3. Find the perimeter of a square shaped playground whose each side length 12 m.
Solution:
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
4. Each sides of a paper sheet is 14 ft. Find its perimeter.
Solution:
Given: Side length is 14 ft.
Perimeter of a square is = 4 × side
= 4 × 14 ft
= 56 ft
5. Find the perimeter of the square PQRS whose one side is 10.5
m.
Solution:
Side of the square = 10.5 m
Perimeter of the square = 4 × side
= 4 × 10.5
= 42 m
6. Find the perimeter of the square PQRS whose one side is 4
cm.
Solution:
The perimeter of the square
= 4 × side
= 4 × 4 cm
= 16 cm

Cuboid is a solid box whose every surface is a rectangle of same area or different areas. A cuboid will have a length, breadth and height. Hence we can conclude that volume is 3 dimensional. To measure the volumes we need to know the measure 3 sides.

A cube is a solid box whose every surface is a square of same area. Take an empty box with open top in the shape of a cube whose each edge is 2 cm. Now fit cubes of edges 1 cm in it. From the figure it is clear that 8 such cubes will fit in it. So the volume of the box will

Volume is the amount of space enclosed by an object or shape, how much 3dimensional space (length, height, and width) it occupies. A flat shape like triangle, square and rectangle occupies surface on the plane. When we draw a flat shape on a paper, it occupies a certain
