Perimeter Formulas

A perimeter means the distance of the boundary of a two dimensional shape. Also defined as the total sum of the length of all the sides of the object. The algebraic sum of length of each side is the perimeter of that area.
We have the formula available for the following shapes:

It is also defined as the total sum of the length of all the sides of the object. So, the algebraic sum of the length of individual sides of the object gives the perimeter of that object.

Geometric Shape Perimeter Formula Metrics
Parallelogram 2(Base + Height)
Triangle A + b + c a , b and c being the side lengths
Rectangle 2(Length + Width)
Square 4a a =Length of a side
Trapezoid a +b+c+d A, b, c, d being the sides of the trapezoid
Kite 2a + 2b a = Length of first pair
b = Length of second pair
Rhombus 4 x a a  = Length of a side
Hexagon 6 x a a  = Length of a side
