## Formula Definition

The perimeter of a square can be calculated using one of the following formula: if you know the length of a side.

If you know the length of one of the sides of the square, you can calculate its perimeter using the following formula:

$$"perimeter" = S * 4$$

$$4 = "number of sides in a square"$$

$$S = "side"$$

It is a geometric figure with 4 sides, all the sides have equal length. All squares have equal angles.

A square can have vitually infinite posibles shapes, Despite this all have 4 sides and all this angles are 90º.

A perimeter is defined by the outer path of a shape. The shape is always in 2 dimensions. The perimeter is the total length of the exterior path. Another way of looking at this is to think of it as the boundary length of a shape.

In the case of a circle, the perimeter is called a circumference.

Perimeter has a Greek origin, "peri" means "around", and "meter" means "measure". So perimeter means "measure around".

It is a representation of a rule or a general principle using letters. *( Algebra, A. Baldor)*

When describing formulas in plural, it is also valid to say "formulae".
