### Example Question #51 : How To Find The Perimeter Of A Square

A squares sides measure  inches each.  What is its perimeter?

Explanation:

To find the perimeter of any object, simply add the length of each side together.  With a square, all of the sides are uniform, so you can take the side length and multiply it by four (or add it to itself four times). The best answer is:

### Example Question #52 : Squares

A squares sides measure  inches each.  What is its perimeter?

Explanation:

To find the perimeter of any object, simply add the length of each side together.  With a square, all of the sides are uniform, so you can take the side length and multiply it by four (or add it to itself four times). The best answer is:

### Example Question #54 : Squares

A squares sides measure  inches each.  What is its perimeter?

Explanation:

To find the perimeter of any object, simply add the length of each side together.  With a square, all of the sides are uniform, so you can take the side length and multiply it by four (or add it to itself four times). The best answer is:

### Example Question #52 : Squares

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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 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:

Find the perimeter.

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.

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
