What happens to the perimeter of a square if the length of each side is tripled?
1 Answer | add yours
The perimeter of a square if the sides are of length s is 4*s. If each of the sides is tripled in length, the length of the perimeter is 4*(3*s) = 12*s = 3*(4*s)
It is seen that if the length of each side is tripled, the length of the perimeter is also tripled.
