PERIMETER What is perimeter? Perimeter is the measurement of the distance around a figure. It is measured in units and can be measured by inches, feet, blocks, meters, centimeters or millimeters. To get the perimeter of any figure, simply add up the measures of the sides of the figure. How to use perimeter: • To get the perimeter of a rectangle with a length of 4 and a width of 5, add the length and the width and multiply times 2, to take into account all sides. • If a figure is shown, the sides can just simply be added together. • Perimeter can be found for any figure, whether it is a square, triangle, hexagon, pentagon, or octagon. Perimeter can also be found for shapes that are put together. Find the perimeter of the following shape: • If the perimeter of a certain shape is given, the missing side can be found. If a square has a perimeter of 24 units, dividing by 4 will give the length of the side. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
