Perimeter = Sum of the length of the sides.

Sense we're dealing with a square, all sides are equal. Therefore, the perimeter of the square would be: 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 4 * 4 = 16.

16 cm.

When you want to find the perimeter of a square, you add the given number four times because a square's lines are all equal in length.  In the problem stated, the formula to use would be 4+4+4+4=16. This formula comes in handy for people that want to enclose a square area with a fence, as an example to use it in real life.

A square sides are all equal.  Therefor if one side is for the other three sides will also be for. The perimeter is written as : 4+4+4+4=16cm. or 4(4)=16cm. or 4*4=16cm.
