    Figure the side length of each square and then sort them.

    A --> side length = 36 cm

    s = 36 cm

    B --> area is 36 cm² 

    A = s²

    36 = s²

    s = √36

    s = 6 cm

    C --> perimeter is 36 cm

    P = 4s

    36 = 4s

    s = 36/4

    s = 9 cm

    The smallest is B (side length = 6 cm, perimeter = 24 cm, area = 36 cm²)

    The middle is C (side length = 9 cm, perimeter = 36 cm, area = 81 cm²)

    The largest is A (side length = 36 cm, perimeter = 144 cm, area = 1296 cm²)

    area of 36 is 6cm perside  smallest

    Perameter of 36 is 9cm per side middle

    length of 36 is largest 36cm  per side largest

    When you say smallest to largest I would assume you mean area. Or, do you mean perimeter?

    Square A

    Area 36² = 1296 cm², perimeter 4 x 36 = 144 cm

    Square B

    Area 36 cm², perimeter 4 x 6 = 24 cm

    Square C

    Area 9 x 9 = 81 cm², perimeter = 36 cm  

    so, ranking in order of size, whether by perimeter or area we have:

    B smallest, C middle and A largest.

    Area of square A = (36)^2 = 1296 cm^2

    Area of square B = 36 cm^2

    from square C

    solve for is length

    P = 4L

    36 = 4L

    L =9cm

    solving the Area of square C

    A = s^2 = 9^2 = 81 cm^2

    therefore

    B - smallest

    C - middle

    A - largest

    Side length (A,B,C) = (36,6,9) cm. Squares from smallest to largest are (B,C,A).

     Square A : 

     A = 1296 cm^2         Largest

     Square B:

     A = 36 cm^2             Smallest

     Square C: 

     A = 81 cm^2              Middle

    A: side is 36 cm

    B: A = 36 cm², side = √36 = 6 cm

    C: P = 36 cm, side = 36/4 = 9 cm

    surely you can rank the three numbers....

    Try doing the math first.

    I'll give you a hint:

    Square A has an area of 1296 cm^2 and a perimeter of 144 cm.
