**Answer:**

**Explanation:**

the length of the wire = the perimeter of the circle = 2πx42 = (44x6)cm. the perimeter of the square = the length of the wire = 44x6 cm. Hence the length of the sides of the square = 44x6\4 = 66cm

__Answer____ ____:__

The side of square is __6____6____c__** m**.

__Step-by-step____ explanation____ ____:____-__

__To ____Find____:____-__

- The side of a square

__S____o____l____u____t____i____o____n____:____-__

Given that,

- Radius of circle = 42cm
- A wire in form of circle is bent to form a square

Therefore,

**Perimeter**** of**** ****square**** ****=**** ****Circumference**** of**** circle**,

The circumference of the circle is,

As we know that,

**Circumference**** of**** circle**** ****=**** ****2****π****r**, therefore,

» 2 × 22/7 × 42

» 2 × 22 × 6

» 44 × 6

» 264cm

__The ____circumference____ of____ circle____ is____ ____2____6____4____c____m____ ____&____ ____the____ ____perimeter____ of____ ____square____ is____ ____2____6____4____c__** m**.

The side of square is,

As we know that,

**Perimeter**** ****=**** ****4**** ****×**** ****side**, therefore

» 4 × side = Perimeter

» 4 × side = 264

» side = 264 / 4

» side = 66

__Therefore____,____ ____the____ ____side ____of____ ____square____ is____ ____6____6____c__** m**.
