# Formulas for Square

You just need to learn three formulas to calculate the missing value in a square based on one known value. F1: $$P = 4 \cdot a$$ a = side d = diagonal A = area P = perimeter F2: $$A = a^2$$ F3: $$d = a \cdot \sqrt{2}$$

The diagram on the right shows when to use each of these formulas.

## Example 1:

If you are given diagonal d and you want to calculate side a, then you need to use formula which connects d and a.

## Example 2:

If you are given area A and you want to calculate perimeter P then you need to make two steps to calculate perimeter. In first step you apply formula which connects area A and side a after that use formula which connects side a and perimeter P.
