## Definition

Perimeter is the measurement of the total length of the sides of a given shape or polygon

## Summary

When we want to measure the perimeter of a shape, all we need to do is to add the length of all the sides.

Where can we apply the concept of perimeter in life?

• Perimeter is very useful in construction and engineering industries.
• Measuring the accurate perimeter of lands, fence, house lot, etc is important to know the amount of materials needed for the construction of it.

## Example

Engineer Dwight needs to calculate the length of wire needed to enclose the idle lot of his neighborhood. Refer to the illustration below.

To compute for the perimeter, just add the length of each side.

Perimeter = 48 + 48 + 25 + 25 = 146 ft.

The perimeter of the idle lot is 146 ft.
