To find the perimeter and areas of complex shape without a grid you should divide the shape into simple shapes and find the area of each shape alone and then add up the areas all together to get the area of the whole shape. Example: If there is a shape that can be divided into 2 triangles and 1 rectangle then you will find the area of each triangle alone and then the area of the rectangle then add up all the areas together.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Can two shapes have the same perimeter?

Yes - even shapes with different area.


How many shapes have an area of 5 and a perimeter of 12?

There are infinitely many shapes.


What is the area of a complex figure with a perimeter of 112 feet?

Anywhere between 0 square feet and approx 998.2 square feet - it all depends upon the exact shape of the complex figure. To calculate the area of a complex figure, split it up into shapes for which you can workout the area and then add all the areas of the shapes together.


Can a shape have the same area but not perimeter?

Most shapes have different perimeter than area, as far as value.


Can shapes with the same area have different perimeter?

yes they can


Do all shapes with fixed perimeter have the same area?

No


What shapes have a perimeter of 15 and an area of 16?

Why would you need to separate a figure into parts to calculate perimeter and area?

You don't need to if you can manage to work out the perimeter and area of complex shapes. Most people cannot work easily with shapes other than triangles, quadrilaterals, circles and semicircles. For them (us) it is easier to partition the shape.


What shapes have the same perimeter but different areas?

Given any shape with a given area you can another shape with the same area but a different perimeter. And convesely, given any perimeter you can have another shape with the same perimeter but a different area. And these apply for the infinite number of shapes.


How shapes have the same area but different perimeter?

Because the area is different than the perimeters


What is the area and perimeter of a cylinder?

There is no perimeter of a circle. Only flat shapes have perimeters. You can however, find the circumference, surface area, and volume.


How do you figure out the area if you know the perimeter?

You can't. The perimeter doesn't tell the area. There are an infinite number of shapes with different dimensions and different areas that all have the same perimeter.


What are the similarities between area and perimeter?

They are physical characteristics of a plane shape. 3-dimensional shapes do have areas, but the concept of a perimeter is generally restricted to plane shapes.


Why cant shapes have the same area but not perimeter?

area is times the side and the top and the perimeter is adding the top bottom side and the other side


Are there shapes with the same area but a different perimeter?

Certainly. Infinitely many for any given area.


How do you find the perimeter of a triangle if you know the area?

You cannot. For a given area, an equilateral triangle will have the smallest perimeter but that perimeter can be increased - without limit - without increasing the area.


How do you determine the area of a rectangle if you know the perimeter?

You can't. The perimeter doesn't tell the area. There are an infinite number of shapes with different dimensions and different areas that all have the same perimeter.


What do you notice about the area of shapes that have the same perimeter?

That two different shapes may well have the same perimeter, but different areas. As an example, a 3 x 1 rectangle and a 2 x 2 rectangle have the same perimeter, but the area is different.


How do you find the perimeter and area of an irregular shape?

You break it up into smaller shapes which are less irregular. If these are more regular, you can calculate their contribution to the perimeter, and their area. You can then add these together.


What is perimeter of 435600 sqft?

The area doesn't tell you the perimeter. There are an infinite number of shapes and sizes, all with different dimensions and perimeters but the same area.


Shapes with the same area do they have the same perimeter?

No.Rectangle 5 x 10. Area = 50. Perimeter = 30.Rectangle 2 x 25. Area = 50. Perimeter = 54.


How is math used in drawing?

you find area or perimeter in shapes like square and triangle


If two shapes have the same area and perimeter are they congruent?

Only if they have the same number of sides.


What shapes can you make with the area of 24 and perimeter of 22?

A 3 x 8 rectangle


How do you find area and perimeter?

For the area of a square, it is the base x the height, and the perimeter is 2height+2base. For the area of a triangle, it is base x height divided by two. And to find the perimeter you just add up each of the side lengths.
