### Example Question #21 : Quadrilaterals

Find the area of the square shown below:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

A square has sides that are all equal. Area is length times width, and in the case of a square it is the side measurement times itself.

### Example Question #21 : Squares

Use the following to answer the question.

Find the area of the square.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

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

where *l* is the width and *w* is the width of the square.

If we look at the square

we can see the width is 7in. Because it is a square, we know that all sides are equal. Therefore, the length is also 7in. Knowing this, we can substitute into the formula. We get

### Example Question #21 : Squares

Use the following square to answer the question:

Find the area.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

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

where *l* is the length and *w* is the width of the square.

Now, let's look at the square.

We can see the width of the square is 2in. Because it is a square, all sides are equal. Therefore, the length is also 2in.

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

### Example Question #5182 : Ssat Elementary Level Quantitative (Math)

Use the following square to solve the problem:

Find the area.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

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

where *l* is the length and *w* is the width of the square.

Now, given the square

we can see the length is 5cm. Because it is a square, all sides are equal. Therefore, the width is also 5cm. So, we can substitute

### Example Question #25 : Quadrilaterals

What is the perimeter of a square of area 36?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The area of a square is the square of the length of its side (all sides are equal in a square). If the area is 36, then the length of each side is 6.

The perimeter of a square is 4 times the length of its side. Therefore, 4 times 6 is 24.

### Example Question #5181 : Ssat Elementary Level Quantitative (Math)

Which of the following is NOT a quadrilateral?

**Possible Answers:**

parallelogram

nonagon

rhombus

trapezoid

**Correct answer:**

nonagon

Quadrilaterals have 4 sides. A nonagon has 9 sides.

### Example Question #27 : Quadrilaterals

What is the perimeter of a square that has a side measuring 3 inches in length?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Perimeter is the sum of all the sides. For a square, .

Therefore, for this square,

### Example Question #21 : Geometry

What is the perimeter of a square that has a side measuring 1 inch in length?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Perimeter is the sum of all the sides. For a square,

Therefore, for this square,

### Example Question #22 : Squares

What is the perimeter of the square?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the perimeter of this square, add all four sides together. Even though we are only given one side's length, every side of a square always has the same length!

### Example Question #30 : Quadrilaterals

What is the perimeter of the square?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the perimeter of a square, simply add all four sides together. Even though we are only given one side's length, squares always have four, equal sides!
