perimeter = $1000$ inches
RECALL: (1) The perimeter of a polygon is equal to the sum of the lengths of all its sides. (2) A square has four equal sides. This means that the three unknown side lengths are all 250 inches. Add the lengths of all the sides to find the perimeter: perimeter = $250+250+250+250= 1000$ inches
