 Question 98908: Hi, I was wondering if you don't mind helping me with this word problem: If the perimeter of a sqauare and the circumference of a circle are the same, then which one of the two has a smaller area? Expain your eanswer please. ThanksAnswer by edjones(7569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!let perimeter of a square=x then each side is x/4 and the area A=(x/4)^2=x^2/16 let circle circumference=y so the area of a circle is the green line in the graph. The area of a circle is larger than the area of a square for all measurements perimeter and circumference. They approach each other as they approach zero. Ed
