Answer:

The perimeter would be 12 units.

Explanation:

To find the perimeter of a square with a diagonal of #3sqrt2# we must first determine the length of the sides of the square.

A square cut by a diagonal is divided into a #45^o-45^o-90^o# triangle which has a special ration of #a-a-asqrt2#

enter image source here

This means the sides of the square are #s =3#

The perimeter of a square is determines by the equation #P=4s#

#P=4(3)= 12#
