Any 5 sided polygon is a pentagon. There is no formula for it. We have formulas for area and perimeter. Perhaps that is what you are asking?

Although some have said Archimedes, my opinion is that the formulas for area and perimeter of a rectangle were well known before his time (300BC). The Babylonians in 1500BC knew how to create Pythagorean triples, so I wouldn't be surprised if they knew this. Archimedes did discover more difficult formulas, such as perimeter and area of a circle, and volume of a sphere and a cone.

Area : 44cm² Perimeter : 30cm

In which jobs we use perimeter and area?

SA = BA + ph SA = BA + LA because LA = ph (perimeter x height)

They depend on radius rather than perimeter.

For the perimeter of a polygon you add the sides to find the total distance around the shape. For area, you multiply using the various formulas for different polygons.

It is area, not perimeter!

Perimeter is the distance around the figure. Add all sides. Area depends on the figure. Triangle --- 1/2 bh Rectangle --- lw. Others --- divide into triangles and find the area of each triangle then add all together.

Perimeter = 4*Side so that Side = Perimeter/4 Area of a rhombus = Side * Altitude so Altitude = Area/Side = Area/(Perimeter/4) = 4*Area/Perimeter
