# Perimeter of a Square

Lesson Objective
In this lesson, we will learn about the perimeter of a square.
In this lesson, we will:
1. Learn about the perimeter of a square and the formula for finding its perimeter.
2. See an example on using the formula to find a square's perimeter.
3. See another example on using the formula to find the length of each side (edge) of a square.
The study tips and math video below will explain more.

# Study Tips

Tip #1
A square has four right angles. It has four sides and all the sides have the same length.

Now, if the length of each side is L, the perimeter, P, of the square will be the sum of the length of each side. Hence:
P = 4L

The math video below will give more explanation on this. Also, we will see some examples on how to use this formula.
