The perimeter is the distance around the outside
of a shape.
To work out the perimeter of a rectangle, you add up the lengths and the widths.
For example:
Length 15cm
Width
4cm

The perimeter is the distance around the outside
of a shape.
To work out the perimeter of a rectangle, you add up the lengths and the widths.
For example:
Length 15cm
Width
4cm
Width
4cm
Length 15cm
Perimeter = 15cm + 4cm + 15cm + 4cm
= 38cm

Width
4cm
Length 15cm
A quicker way to find the perimeter of a rectangle is to add up one of
the lengths with one of the widths and then double that answer
