# The perimeter of a square is 36. What is the length of one of its sides?

**Solution:**

Given: Perimeter of square = 36

The perimeter of a square is defined as the sum of all its four sides

We know that the perimeter of the square is 4a, with side length ‘a’. We are required to find the side 'a'.

Equate the given perimeter of a square with the formula, we get

36 = 4a

a = 36/4

a = 9

## The perimeter of a square is 36. What is the length of one of its sides?

**Summary:**

If the perimeter of a square is 36 then the length of one of its sides is 9 units.
