## What is a Square?

A square is a two-dimensional geometric shape with four sides of equal length and four right angles.

## Perimeter of a Square

The perimeter of a square is the total distance around the boundary of the square. It is equal to the sum of the lengths of all the four sides of the square. Since all four sides of a square are equal in length, the perimeter can be calculated by multiplying the length of one side with 4.

So, if "s" is the length of one side of a square, then the perimeter of that square can be expressed as:

Perimeter = 4s

Example: Suppose we have a square with a side length of 5 units.

To find the perimeter of this square, we plug the side length into the formula and calculate.
Perimeter = 4 x Side Length
= 4 x 5
= 20

Therefore, the perimeter of this square is 20 units.
