Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:The perimeter of the square wooden box is 91.2 cmArea of the square wooden box is 346.56 sq.  cmStep-by-step explanation:The original side of the wooden box = 6 cmNow, New side of the box  =  Original side of the square + 1.6 cm                                              = 6 cm + 1.6 cm = 7.6 cmor, the new side of the wooden square box = 7. 6 cm(a) PERIMETER of the new box = 12 x Side of the box                                                           = 12 x (7.6 cm)  = 91.2 cmHence, the perimeter of the square wooden box  = 91.2 cm(b) Area of the new box  = 6 x [tex](Side)^2[/tex]                                          = 6 x [tex](7.6)^2[/tex]   = 346.56 sq.  cmHence, the area of the square wooden box  = 346.56 sq.  cm
