To find the perimeter of a figure, add all the lengths of the edges of the figure. The sum of the sides is the perimeter.

2*area of triangular faces + perimeter of triangle*length of prism (not prisim).

L=PH L=PH Lateral Area= (Perimeter of the base)(the height of the figure)

Laying turf then fencing it in

Depending on the figure given you can find the area from the perimeter For example- If you have a square with a perimeter of 24, you divide 24 by 4 because all the sides of a square are congruent. In turn you will 6 as each side of the square The formula for the area of a square is side2 so you get 62 which is 36. The area is 36

The distance around a figure is called a perimeter. The formula to find a perimeter is: width x2 + length x2 = area

If you are given the width and the perimeter, then figure out what the length is then calculate the area... hope this helps :)

Divide the irregular figure into manageable pieces and work out their individual areas, sum the areas to that of the original figure. Measure the perimeter.

1). Calculate the perimeter of the figure. 2). Calculate the area of the figure. 3). Divide one by the other.

To find the perimeter of a figure, add all the lengths of the edges of the figure. The sum of the sides is the perimeter.

No, you also need some details about the specific figure you are working with.

2*area of triangular faces + perimeter of triangle*length of prism (not prisim).

To find the perimeter you add and to find the area we multiply.

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.

A simple example would be a square that is ten inches by ten inches. To find the area multiply the length by the width, 10 x 10 = 100in2 (or 100 square inches). To find the perimeter of the square, 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 40 inches (or 10 x 4 = 40 inches).

You find perimeter by adding all the sides of a figure.
