Example Question #52 : Squares

Find the perimeter of a square with a width of 7ft. 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the perimeter of a square, we will use the following formula:

where a, b, c, and d are the lengths of the sides of the square.

 

Now, we know the width of the square is 7ft.  Because it is a square, we know that all sides are equal.  This means that all sides have the same length.  Therefore, every side is 7ft.  Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get

Example Question #53 : Squares

Find the perimeter of a square with a base of length 8 inches.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the perimeter of a square, we will use the following formula:

where a, b, c, and d are the lengths of the sides of the square.

 

We know the base of this square has a length of 8 inches.  Because it is a square, we know that all sides are equal.  This means that all sides are the same length.  Therefore, all sides are 8 inches.  Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get

Example Question #54 : Squares

Find the perimeter of a square with a base of length 7 inches.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the perimeter of a square, we will use the following formula:

where a, b, c, and d are the lengths of the sides of the square.

 

Now, we know the base of the square has a length of 7in.  Because it is a square, we know that all sides are equal.  Therefore, all sides have a length of 7in.  Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get

Example Question #55 : Squares

Find the perimeter of a square with a length of 8in.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the perimeter of a square, we will use the following formula:

where a, b, c, and are the lengths of the sides of the square.

 

Now, we know the length of the square is 8in. Because it is a square, we know that all sides are equal.  This means that all sides are 8in.  Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.

Example Question #56 : How To Find The Perimeter Of A Square

where a, b, c, and d are the lengths of the sides of the square.

 

Now, we know the width of the square is 8in.  Because it is a square, all sides are equal.  This means that all sides are 8in.  Knowing all of this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get

Example Question #56 : Squares

Use the following square to answer the question:

Square1

Find the perimeter.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the perimeter of a square, we will use the following formula:

where a, b, c, and are the lengths of the sides of the square.

 

Now, let's look at the square.

Square1

We can see one side is 5cm.  Because it is a square, all sides are equal.  Therefore, all sides are 5cm. 

Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula.  We get
