## Square

Square = Flat Shape with Four Equal Sides (with four right angles) Basics
s = Side
P = Perimeter = distance along sides of square
A = Area = area covering surface of square (measured in square units)
Right Angle = 90°

A square has four right angles.
The opposite sides of a square are parallel.
A square is a special form of a parallelogram in which all angles are right angles and all sides are equal.

The math involving the geometric square often requires the calculation of arithmetic squares and square roots. is the squaring command.  is the square root command. activates above .
