2 questions. for math.

I have a question.
can you help me.

The question is, Find the side length of a square that has a permeter of 32cm?

im not understanding the part where it says find the side length.
because to fing the area you need to do width x length.
so how do i get the perimeter?

  1. The perimeter is the measurement around the outside. So adding the 4 sides together equals 32 cm. How long do you think each side is?

  5. area = length x width

    Since a square has equal length and width, obviously all 4 sides are equal.

    So ... what x what = 81 ??

  7. No that doesn't make sense.

    Area = length x width
    No division involved; no addition involved; no subtraction involved. Only multiplication.

    ___ x ___ = 81
    Think back on your multiplication tables.
