Definition

Perimeter is the measurement of the total length of the sides of a given shape or polygon. When we want to measure the perimeter of a polygon, all we need to do is to add the length of all its sides. 

While area can be defined as the region covered by a flat shape or the surface of an object.  The area of a figure is the number of unit squares that occupied the surface of a closed figure. 

Summary

PERIMETER OF POLYGONS

  • Square P = 4s
  • Rectangle P = 2L + 2W
  • Trapezoid P = a + b + c + d
  • Parallelogram P = 2a + 2b
  • Triangle P = a + b + c

AREA OF POLYGONS

Area of squareA = s  Area of rectangleA = lwArea of RhombusA = bh or  d  x d
Area of ParallelogramA = bh  Area of TrapezoidA = bh or b  x b    Area of KiteA = bh or  d  x d

The area of a triangle is equal to the half of the product of its base and height or A = ½ bh, where b = base of the triangle and h = height/altitude of the triangle
