# I want to how do you find the perimeter of the square if you only have 1 side of the square? ⚑ Flag

help me

a square has all the same sides, so you would multiply that by the length of the side that you have.

you mutiply that side of the square by 4 since the perimeter equals all sides of the square added up together and since all sides of a square have the same measurements!!!

You use the formula P=4s. For example, if the side(s) equals 5, then the answer is 20 because you multiply the length of the side by 4.

you multiply it by 4.Example:You have 5 as the one side. Square has four sides.5*4=20=Area of square

If it a square then you only need one side to determine the other 3 sides because all sides of a square are equal so lets say that the side length that you do know equals 5 then all the other sides will be five as well so then to find the area of the square you would do base times height so 5*5 which would be 25

Multiply the side you have by 4.

if you have a square you only need one side because if it's a square you can assume the sides are the same length. so you just multiply the side you have by 4

since a square has all sides = to one another you can just take one side a multiply by 4

Multiply that side with 4 as square has all sides equal

Since a square has all the same side lengths, the length of one side will be equivalent to the rest. So all u do, is either MULTIPLY , the side by 4, or ADD the side 4 times.
