Triangles and Squares

I was wondering about this question my friend thought up: Is it possible to have 2 congruent triangles which have an area identical to a square (e.g 32,32 would make 64). There is, however, one condition. The perimeter of one of these individual triangles MUST be equal to the square. Is this possible?
