Since you are looking for the perimeter, you are looking for the distance around the square; and since all of the sides of a square are of equal length, you have: Perimeter = x + x + x + x = 4x. The area of any rectangle is length * width. In your case, since the length and width are equal, . We know from the problem that Area = 300, so we have: (Taking the square root of both sides) (simplifying the expression) The perimeter = = = = 69.28 Therefore the perimeter of the square photograph is 69.28 inches.
