    the perimeter is 20, so what is the side length?

    let x=side length per=4x 4x=20 x=5

    so you have a perimeter of 20, a flat unit so to make it square unit, borrow a few units from the 20, or split it in 2 use one unit for the length, another for the width and get the area by length x width

    the area is then found by using this formula A = s^2 A = area s = side length

    5 is a step to get the answer, it's not the actual answer

    area is lengthxwidth, since its a square that has 4 equal sides do 20/4 to get 5. so each side is 5. lengthxwidth is 5x5 = 25

    25 feet squared should be the right answer! Make sure the units are square feet.

    Does it require the units?
