you are suppose to MULTIPLY on area.
you add the area
Multiply for the area, add for the perimeter.
for area you times width x length
no add the sides of the area
No because you multiply the dimensions
To find the perimeter you add and to find the area we multiply.
The perimeter is the length around something, add all sides together to get the length of the perimeter.
Multiply l by 7 then add 1 to find the area
To calculate the area you multiply the width times lenghth.the numbers that are on the side of the shape multiply them and you'll get the area. Now to get the perimeter you add the numbers on the sides together. Add lenght times width.that's how you get your perimter and area.
