The Perimeters of Triangles and Quadrilaterals

Find the perimeters of triangles and quadrilaterals

Perimeter – is defined as the total length of a closed shape. It is obtained by adding the lengths of the sides inclosing the shape. Perimeter can be measured in 𝑚𝑚 , 𝑐𝑚 ,𝑑𝑚 ,𝑚,𝑘𝑚 e. t. c

Examples

Example 1

Find the perimeters of the following shapes

**Solution**

- Perimeter = 7𝑚 + 7𝑚 + 3𝑚 + 3𝑚 = 20 𝑚
- Perimeter = 2𝑚 + 4𝑚 + 5𝑚 = 11 𝑚
- Perimeter = 3𝑐𝑚 + 6𝑐𝑚 + 4𝑐𝑚 + 5𝑐𝑚 + 5 𝑐𝑚 + 4𝑐𝑚 = 27 𝑐𝑚
