### Example Question #81 : Geometry

A square has perimeter 16 feet 4 inches. What is the length of one side?

3 feet 11 inches

4 feet 5 inches

4 feet 3 inches

3 feet 9 inches

4 feet 1 inch

4 feet 1 inch

Explanation:

One foot is equal to 12 inches, so the perimeter 16 feet 4 inches is equal to  inches.

An square has four sides of equal measure, so divide its perimeter by 4:

To convert 49 inches to feet and inches:

One side measures 4 feet 1 inch.

### Example Question #2 : How To Find The Perimeter Of A Square

The length of one side of a square is  What is the perimeter of this square?

Explanation:

The perimeter of a shape is the distance around the outside boundry of that shape.

In order to find the perimeter, add up the lengths of the sides of that shape.

Because a square has four equal sides, add  to find the perimeter. Equivalently, multiply .

### Example Question #1 : Squares

Find the perimeter of the square in the figure.

Explanation:

Finding perimeter is easiest with squares. Perimeter is the distance around the outside of the figure. There are two good ways to find the perimeter. The first and longer method of finding perimeter is simply to add up the length of each side. Thus, we would take the length of top of the square and add it to the length of the right side. We'd continue all the way around. The formula for this method could be written like so:

top + right side + bottom + left side = perimeter.

Since a square has equal sides all around, we could also write the formulalike so:

The second and easier way of finding perimeter for a square is a simplification of the first method. Instead of adding the same number four times we could simply multiply by 4. Written as a formula, this would look like this:

For the this question, your work should then look like one of these two options:
