Expert Answer:

We know that perimeter square is the sum of the lengths of its sides. A square has four sides and they are equal in length.

The perimeter of square = sum of the lengths of all four sides

= 4 times the length of a side of a


= 4 x l = 4l.

We may take the perimeter also to be represented by a variable, say p.

Therefore, length of the square, p= 4l
