The perimeter of the square mat is $48$ $m$ The area of the square mat is $144$ $m^{2}$
Step 1: Find the perimeter. Let $P =$ perimeter of square mat $P = 4(12)$ (square has four equal sides, each side is $12$m) $P = 48$m Step 2: Find the area. Let $A =$ area of square mat $A = 12^{2}$ $A = 144 m^{2}$ Refer to Attachment1 below.
