Area and Perimeter Formulas

Shape | Area | Perimeter |
---|---|---|

Circle | A = π × r^{2} | Circumference = 2πr |

Triangle | A = ½ × b × h | S = a+b+c |

Square | A = a^{2} | P = 4a |

Rectangle | A = l × w | P = 2(l + w) |

To find the perimeter, **add together the lengths of the sides**. Start at the top and work clockwise around the shape. Area of Polygon = (Area of A) + (Area of B) To find the area, divide the polygon into two separate, simpler regions.

**Area of a Square = side × side = side² square units****Perimeter = 4 x side = 4 √Area units**. Thus, we can find the perimeter of a square given its area. Example: If area of square is 16 sq.cm. Find its perimeter.

Area is **the space enclosed by a plane figure (2 Dimensional shapes)**. Area is measured in "square" units. The area of a plane figure is the number of squares needed to cover it completely.

TSA – **Total surface area**.

**Perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape.** **Area measures the space inside a shape**.

Volume is the measure of the 3-dimensional space occupied by matter, or enclosed by a surface, measured in **cubic units**. The SI unit of volume is the cubic meter (m^{3}), which is a derived unit.

The perimeter is the length of the outline of a shape. To find the perimeter of a rectangle or square you have to **add the lengths of all the four sides**. x is in this case the length of the rectangle while y is the width of the rectangle.

**The area is the amount of space occupied by a two-dimensional flat object in a plane.** **Volume is defined as the space occupied by a three-dimensional object**. The unit of area is in square units. The unit of volume is in cubic units.

All rectangles are also parallelograms, but not all parallelograms are rectangles. The perimeter P of a rectangle is given by the formula, P=2l+2w , where l is the length and w is the width of the rectangle. The area A of a rectangle is given by the formula, A=lw , where l is the length and w is the width.

The perimeter is the length of the outline of a shape. To find the perimeter of a rectangle or square you have to add the lengths of all the four sides. x is in this case the length of the rectangle while y is the width of the rectangle. The perimeter, P, is: **P=x+x+y+y**.

Perimeter, Area and Volume formulas

For your knowledge **a perimeter is the path that surrounds or encompasses a two-dimensional shape.** While Volume is the quantity of a three-dimensional space enclosed by a closed surface. And Area is the quantity that expresses the extent of a two-dimensional figure or shape.

**How to calculate area?**

- Square area formula: A = a²
- Rectangle area formula: A = a * b.
- Triangle area formulas: A = b * h / 2 or.
- Circle area formula: A = πr²
- Circle sector area formula: A = r² * angle / 2.
- Ellipse area formula: A = a * b * π
- Trapezoid area formula: A = (a + b) * h / 2.
- Parallelogram area formulas:

**Add together the lengths of all the walls** to calculate the perimeter of any room. For example, suppose a room has two curved walls that measure 18 and 20 feet, and three straight walls that measure 18, 24, and 15 feet. Adding those numbers together results in a perimeter of 95 feet.

**Units of Measure**

- Volume = length x width x height.
- You only need to know one side to figure out the volume of a cube.
- The units of measure for volume are cubic units.
- Volume is in three-dimensions.
- You can multiply the sides in any order.
- Which side you call length, width, or height doesn't matter.

Perimeter is **the total length of the sides of a two-dimensional shape**. We often find the perimeter when putting up Christmas lights around the house or fencing the backyard garden.

The perimeter of a shape **represents the distance around it**, the area of a shape is the surface or flat space that the shape covers (in 2D) while the volume of a shape is the space it occupies in real life (in 3D).

**Perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape.** **Area measures the space inside a shape**.

To find the perimeter, add together the lengths of the sides. Start at the top and work clockwise around the shape. Area of Polygon = (Area of A) + (Area of B) To find the area, divide the polygon into two separate, simpler regions.
