The perimeter of a square is 48 centimeters. What is its area?
the area is 144 units. area is length × width squares have an equal lenght and width, and 4 sides. if a square's perimeter is 48, we need to divide that by 4 to get the size of each side. 48 ÷ 4 = 12 each side is 12 units. to get the area, we need to mutliple length × width, in this case 12 × 12, which equals 144 units.
Each side would equal 12 centimeters then, and the way to find the area is by multiplying the height and width. So, the area would be 144 centimeters! I hope this helps!! :) P.S. When finding the area of a triangle always remember after multiplying the 2 numbers together you have to divide by 2.
