Find the area and perimeter of a square of side of 4 cm.

Given :

The side of the square is 4 cm.

To do :

We have to find the area and the perimeter of the square.

Solution :

We know that,

For a square of side s,

  • Area $= s^2$
  • Perimeter $= 4s$

Length of the side of square $= 4 $cm

Perimeter of the given square $= 4(4) cm = 16 cm$.

Area of the given square $= (4 cm)^2 = 16 cm^2$.

Therefore, the area of the square is 16 sq cm and the perimeter of the square is 16 cm.
