| **The perimeter of the triangle is 12 cm. This is 12 cm less than the perimeter of the square. How long is the side of the square?**

The first step is to calculate the perimeter of the square:

1) 12 cm + 12 cm = 24 cm perimeter of the square.

The perimeter of a square is calculated as the sum of the lengths of its sides. P = 4 * a. The length of the side of the square can be calculated by the formula a = P / 4.

2) 24cm: 4 = 6cm side length of the square.

Answer: the length of the side of the square is 6 centimeters.
