Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the area is then found by using this formula A = s^2 A = area s = side length

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0area 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.025 feet squared should be the right answer! Make sure the units are square feet.
