You are calculating the length of a line segment

Because a right angle triangle can be formed by the given coordinates and the length of the line is the hypotenuse of the triangle and so by using Pythagoras' theorem its length or distance can be found. Distance formula: square root of [(x1-x2)^2 plus (y1-y2)^2)]

Assuming the shape is a regular dodecagon, the formula for calculating the perimeter for a dodecagon of side length n is equal to 12n.

6(pi)l2, where l = length of side
