If the perimeter of a square garden is 84ft, what is the area of the garden?
If the garden is square, all of the sides are equal.
s = length of one side of the garden Perimeter of the square garden = 4s. {all 4 equal sides added together} 4s = 84 {all 4 sides added together equals the perimeter of 84} s = 21 {divided each side by 4} Area of a square = s² {one side squared....or length times width} Area = 21² {substituted one side, 21, in for s} = 441 {squared the 21} The area of the garden is 441 ft².
