The area formula of a square is:

A = lw or since the length and width of a square are the same... A = s

36 = s

The formula for the perimeter is:

P = 2l + 2w or again since the length and width of a square are the same... P = 4s

So using the second formula:

P = 4(6) = 24 meters

A = lw or since the length and width of a square are the same... A = s

^{2}Using the second formula:36 = s

^{2}6 = s after taking the square root of each sideThe formula for the perimeter is:

P = 2l + 2w or again since the length and width of a square are the same... P = 4s

So using the second formula:

P = 4(6) = 24 meters
