The perimeter of square is =$$4 * side$$

and the perimeter of rectangle = $$2 *(Length + breadth)$$

Now give,

$$4S = 2* (x + x + 6)$$ ( S = side of the square i.e. given)

or $$4S = 4x + 12$$

or $$S = x + 3$$

Hence option C

the perimeter of rectangle = x+x+x+6+x+6 = 4x+12
side of square= 4x+12 /4= x+3 Re: The perimeter of square S   [#permalink] 18 Jan 2019, 19:53
