    Assuming the figure is a square, x=9.
    Divide 36 by 4 (since it’s a square)
    36/4=9
    x=9

    Answer:

    Taking a square area, a 36 perimeter will represent a 9 as the x value.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We have the perimeter of a geometric figure.

    Let’s suppose we have a square shape and let x be the value of the side of the square.

    The area of the square will be the square of the side A = x*x.

    The perimeter of the square will be the sum of 4 sides. As it is a square, all sides have the same value. P = x +x +x +x = 4*x

    We have a perimeter of 36. We can find x isolating from:

    36 = 4*x

    x = 36/4

    x =9.

    Finally, x has to be 9 as the side of a square for the 36 perimeter.
