Given that the perimeter of a square is 1212 meters, we are to identify the length of its sides.

A square is a four-sided polygon with 44 equal sides.

The perimeter PP of a square is given by the formula,

P=4sP=4s

Where ss is the length of its sides.

We use this formula to solve for the length of the sides of the square.
