To find area given perimeter, rename perimeter to circumference and solve with these formulas:

Circumference = 2πr (or 2 * π * r)

Area = πr^2 (or π * r * r)

With these the area can be found from circumference(or perimeter) as follows:

A = π(C / 2π)^2

Now, to find the perimeter given the area;

We use A = πr^2 and rearrange then solve:

r = √(A / π)

So, the circumference would be 2πr = 2π√(A / π)

How do you determine area if perimeter is given?

More information is required in order to answer this question. What is the shape for which the perimeter is given? If it anything other than a circle or regular polygon it is not possible to determine the area. For a circle or regular polygon, the answer will depend on the shape.

How do you find the perimeter using area?

Perimeter and area have a relationship but the shape of the space and area together determine the perimeter. A circle has the maximum Area for a given perimeter -or- the minimum perimeter for a given area. Area = pi * radius * radius and perimeter = 2*pi * radius for a circle; perimeter = 2* pi * square root of (Area/pi) With regards to square and rectangles the closer a shape is to square the greater the Area for a given perimeter -or- the minimum the perimeter to a given area. Square Area = side * side and periemter = 4 * side So perimeter = 4 * square root (Area) To solve for a rectangle, you must know ONE side to solve as the relationship between the Area and the perimeter is change as the relative size of side1 and side 2 changes. Rectangle Area = side1 * side2 and perimeter = 2 * (side1 + side2) so perimeter = 2 * (Area/side1 + side1) or 2 * (Area/side2 + side2)
