Perimeter = 2 times length + 2 times width

P = 2L + 2W

P = (2 * 40) + (2 * 10)

P = 80 + 20

80 ft. because a square must be equal on all sides, otherwise it’s a rectangle. Each side must be 20 ft. because the square root of 400 is 20 (what times itself equals 400, 20 x 20). If each side is 20, and there are 4 sides, do 20 x 4 for an answer. Thats the explanation.
