count the grids

I think if it were to be a triangle that it would be six on each

By adding together the 3 line segments.

isosceles

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.

That's because "perimeter" means the distance around something - not the spaces inside. If you count squares inside a figure, you are finding the AREA, not the PERIMETER.
