# a piece of board 8m by 6m is cut into 12 equal squares. find the perimeter of each square?

Dear Student,

Given : A piece of board 8 m by 6 m , So

Area of piece of board  = 8 $×$ 6   =  48 m2

Also given : Piece of board cut into 12 equal squares , So

Area of a square  = $\frac{48}{12}$ = 4 m2

We know Area of square  = ( Side )2

So,

( Side )2 = 4

Side = 2

Therefore,

Side of a square cut out from piece of board  = 2 m

We know perimeter of a square  = 4 ( Side )

So,

Perimeter of each square  = 4 ( 2 ) =  8  m                                    ( Ans )
