Perimeter of a Rectangle |
---|
The Perimeter of a rectangle is the total distance around all of its edges. |
Take the following rectangle:
Figure 1. |

Perimeter = 6 + 10 + 6 + 10 = 32
The Perimeter of a rectangle can also be found using the equation P = 2(l + w). For the previous rectangle:
Perimeter = 2(6 + 10) = 2(16) = 32
