Say the perimeter of a square is 44 inches.

The formula P = 4s is used.

44 inches = 4s, where s is side of square.

44 inches ÷ 4 = s

11 inches = s

What if the area is 49 inches^2?

A = s^2.

49 = s^2

sqrt{49} = sqrt{s^2}

7 inches = side of square.

Did you follow?

You find the area of a square by squaring the length of one of its sides.

If you know the area, you can find the length of each side by taking the square root of area.

Measure it with a ruler.

Take the square root of the area.

I suspect there is more to your question? Maybe specific information?

Otherwise, if you have a square, finding the side is straightforward.
