Hint: Perimeter is equal to the sum of all the sides of the figure. Here we will use a formula for the perimeter of the square is equal to the sum of all the sides of the square. And as we know that the length of the square of all the four sides are equal. Perimeter is equal to the four times its sides.
$\therefore Perimeter\ \text{of square = 4}\times \text{sides}$

Perimeter of square =$4\times side$
$\Rightarrow 72=4\times side$.
$\Rightarrow side=\frac{72}{4}$ [When multiplicative numerator changes its sides, it goes to the denominator]
$\Rightarrow side=18\text{ }meters$.
The length of the side of the square $=18\ \text{meters }$with the perimeter of a square field $72\,\text{meters}$
Each side of the square is equal and the perimeter of any polygon is the sum of its sides. So, if we take the length of each side of the square are sides(s) its perimeter will be equal to$s+s+s+s$. Which will be equal to$4\times s$.So, the perimeter of the square will be$4\times s$.
