| Perimeter, by definition, is the sum of the lengths of all sides of a shape. In our case, a square is a figure with four equal sides. To find the area of a square, you need to find the length of its side and square it. Let’s find a side. We have to divide 32 (perimeter) by 4 (number of sides).

32 ÷ 4 = 8 dm – side of the square.

Let’s find the area.

8 * 8 = 64 dm – square area.

Answer: 64 dm.
