Neither. -- Perimeter = the distance all the way around it. -- Area = how much of the floor it covers. -- Volume = how much water it can hold.

No, it does not. You can have a large triangle and a tiny quadrilateral. The first has fewer sides but its perimeter can be much much larger.

When you are buying a house you will want to know how much you land you have (area) and you will also want know how much fencing you need for you garden (perimeter).

Perimeter is used when you want to find the length of the sides of an object. A practicle use for perimeter would be knowing how much fencing you need to enclose a certain amount of space, but the length of the fencing would be the perimeter.

The perimeter of a field is how far it takes to walk around the edges. The area is how much land it covers. ■

that would be a squere xD

It depends how the acres are laid out. Is it in a square shape or a rectangle. How much of a rectangle. These are all factors in the perimeter.

The question as asked cannot be answered. If the field were circular, the perimeter would be the least possible. But for a long thin field, the perimeter would be much larger.

the perimeter is 3 times as long as the diameter Example: if my diameter is 7 inches long my perimeter is 3 times as much so it is 21 inches long

Even if you knew how many sides the polygon has, you stillcould not calculate its perimeter with that much information.Examples:-- An equilateral triangle with area of 20 has perimeter of 20.3885 .-- A square with area of 20 has perimeter of 17.889(rounded).-- A rectangle with area of 20 can have any perimeter more than 17.889 .4 by 5 . . . . area = 20, perimeter = 182 by 10 . . . area = 20, perimeter = 241 by 20 . . . area = 20, perimeter = 42..etc.

Information of the area of a shape is not sufficient t determine its shape, much less its perimeter. The only thing for certain is that the perimeter is greater than 17.7 units.
