    L times W = area

    They were given perimeter, so we first need to work backwards.

    If the perimeter is 8cm and it is a square, that means that each side is 2cm. Area of a square=LxW. A=2x2 A=4 |dw:1435690486606:dw|squared cm

    Correct @zebra8806 . A square has 4 sides so we take 8 and divide it by 4 8/4 to get our sides and then use L times W = area, which is 2 times 2 = 4
