# How to find perimeter?

In order to find the perimeter you need to know how to add of course like if you have a square and the area is 11.6 you have to add up all the sides in a aquare which is 4 then you add 11.6 four times which gives you the answers of 46.4If you want to find the perimeter, you just have to add the the sides together. For example, if you are measuring the perimeter for a square (with equal sides) then you just have to find the length for one side and multiply it by four. If you want to do it for an irregular square, then you add the length of the sides together. In algebra, they sometimes make you find the length of a side giving you the whole perimeter and the measurement of one or a few other sides, but they might leave one side as x or y or any other variable. You can find the perimeter for any shape. Perimeter is also shown in word problems. Most of the time, they represent perimeter by a fence. Some people mistake perimeter and area. Just remember, area is the inside and perimeter is the outside.
