    Your area is already given, and you'd find the square root to get the measure of a side.

    4x^2-12xy+9y^2 factored = (2x-3y)(2x-3y)

    AREA =side^2 so what will be the side if area is (2x-3y)^2

    area=(2x-3y)^2= s^2 s=2x-3y and perimeter is 4s= 4(2x-3y) i guess....

    (2x-3y)+(2x-3y)+(2x-3y)+(2x-3y) =8x^4-12y^4? or . . . 4(2x-3y) =8x-12y? .______________________________.

    since u are adding and not multiplying all sides, it will be 8x-12y
