 Question 396711: How do I find the total perimeter of 2 squares, one with an area of the square root of 5 and the other with a square root of 125?Answer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!How do I find the total perimeter of 2 squares, one with an area of the square root of 5 and the other with a square root of 125? ---- Area of a square = (side)^2 -------- 1st square: area = sqrt(5) Solve s^2 = sqrt(5) s = 5^(1/4) Perimeter = 4*5^(1/4) ----------------------------- 2nd sqruare: area = sqrt(125) = 5sqrt(5) Solve s^2 = 5sqrt(5) s = 5^(2/4)*5^(1/4) = 5^(3/4) Perimeter = 4*5^(3/4) =========================== Cheers, stan H.
