    The square root of 225 is 15.

    Perimeter = 4s

    P = 2L + 2W

    I don't get it though can you be more specific?

    What about the second one?

  • Math -

    This makes me wonder how you got your answers.

    You got 15 for the sides of the first one. For a square, you get 15 by taking the square root of the area.

    In the second one, the perimeter is 400.

    400/4 = 100
