    Is this a square-shaped garden?

    Perimeter and Area are both based on length and width, try this P = 2l + 2w A =lw

    perimeter = 2 length + 2 breadth length = 4 solve them as u know the perimeter

    okay 36= 2(length+width ) 36= 2(4+ w) now?

    P = 2l +2w and you know l=4 and P=36, then solve for width and use it to find area!
