If the area and perimeter of a square are numerically equal, find the numerical value of its area.



Step by Step Explanation:
  1. Let the side of the square be S.
    Area of a square, A = S2
    We also know that the perimeter of a square is, P = 4S
  2. According to the question, the area and the perimeter of the square are numerically equal. This means:
    A = P
    or, S2 = 4S
    or, S = 4
  3. Therefore, the area of the square is 16.
