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

Please find below the solution to the asked query:

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

Area of piece of board = 8 $\times $ 6 = 48 m

^{2}

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

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

^{2}

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 )**
