The perimeter is the sum of the sides if oblong and the circumference if circular. If the garden is oblong in shape then the perimeter is 2 x length + 2 x width.

As you state circumference, it may be assumed the room is circular/round. If so the answer is 3.141 multiplied by the diameter. If the room is square/oblong, measure each wall with a tape and add the four measurements together

The circumference of a circle measures the distance around the circle.

There is no such specific unit of measure as a circumference - a circumference is merely the distance around something.

The circumference of a circle measures the distance around the circle.

An "oblong" is not a specific shape since it could refer to the shape of a running track or an ellipse. The former is effectively circle into which two parallel straight sections have been inserted whereas the second has a finite curvature throughout. The circumference of a tracklike pool is 77.1 feet while for an ellipse it is 70.7 feet.

The equation for the circumference of a circle is pi times radius squared.

Circumference is a linear measure and has no volume - just as a straight line has no volume.

The circumference is the distance around a circle and it is measured by:- Circumference of a circle = 2*pi*radius or pi*diameter
