Summary

• In a two-dimensional figure, both perimeter and area can be calculated.
• Perimeter is the total length of the sides of a polygon while area is the measure of how many square units a polygon has.
• Both have played an important role in many fields, especially in engineering and construction

What are Polygons?

Polygons are two-dimensional figures formed by connecting at least three straight lines with no open part. Polygons are named based on the number of sides (line segments) composing it.

TRIANGLE – a polygon with three sides. There are three types of triangles namely equilateral, isosceles and scalene.

Equilateral triangle – all sides are equal.

Isosceles – two sides are equal.

Scalene – no side is equal to any side.

QUADRILATERAL – polygon consisting of four sides.

Square – all sides and angles are equal (to 90°).

Rectangle – two parallel sides are longer than the other two but all angles are equal (to 90°).

Rhombus – all sides are equal but only opposite angles are equal.

Parallelogram – two parallel sides are longer than the other two and only opposite angles are equal.

Trapezoid – has at least two opposite sides parallel.
