A SQUARE is a four-sided figure where all sides are the same length. Notes about squares:
  • A square is most often characterized by S, the length of a side.
  • All sides of a square have the same length.
  • The perimeter, or distance around a square is S+S+S+S, or 4S.
  • The area enclosed by a square is S S, or S2
  • The distance from one corner of a square to the opposite corner is sometimes called the diagonal
  • A square is most often characterized by S, the length of a side. and is given by 21/2S or 1.41S
Finding AREA and PERIMETER: The AREA of a shape is the measurement of the surface of the shape. To find the area of a square or rectangle you need to multiply the length and the width. The area is a measure of the space contained within an object.The PERIMETER of a shape is the length of the outline of the shape. The perimeter of a rectangle or square can be found by adding the lengths of all four sides. The perimeter of a circle is called the circumference.Games All about Area and Perimeter:
