you can only find the perimeter of shapes, honey, not fractions.

You can only figure ot the surface area of a cube.

If you double (2 times) the perimeter the area will will be 4 times larger. Therefore the area is proportional to the square of the perimeter or the perimeter is proportional to the square root of area. The relationship as shown above applies only to triangles with similar proportions, that is when you scale up or down any triangle of fixed proportions. Other than that requirement, there is no relationship between perimeter and area of any shape of triangle except that it can be stated that the area will be maximum when the sides are of equal length (sides = 1/3 of perimeter).

The diagram is not only not the scale, it is not even there!

In general you cannot find the perimeter of any shape if only the area is given.

Area times pie 3.14

The area of a parallelogram is equal to base times height. You can find the maximum area of a parallelogram by multiplying the length of a short side by the length of a long side. (This would be the area if the parallelogram were a rectangle.)You cannot know the area of a parallelogram if all you know is the length of the sides; you can only know the maximumpossible area. Imagine you slant the parallelogram a lot. The area will decrease, but the side lengths will stay the same.

h=a/b

You cannot. There is not enough information.

There is no perimeter of a circle. Only flat shapes have perimeters. You can however, find the circumference, surface area, and volume.

Square root the area and then times the answer by 4

From only the perimeter you cannot.

You can't only using the perimeter. You have to know length and width.

let the length be 'x' and the breadth be 'y' then area = xy and perimeter = 2x+2y Solve the simultaneous linear equations by given area and perimeter. Regards, A Pakistani!

perimeter of a parallelogram = 2(w+h) where:w is the base length of the parallelogramh is the side lengthIf you know the length of one side, then the opposite side must have the same length.This is not enough information to fine the perimeter since you have only h or w and not both.
