Geometry Part 1B Perimeter By Julia Arnold, Dick Gill and Marcia Tharp for Elementary Algebra Math 03 online

Perimeter is the distance around an object.
If the object is a rectangle, then it has 4 sides and opposite sides are equal in length and parallel to each other.The formula for its perimeter is P = 2L + 2W where L is length and W is width of the rectangle. If the object is a circle, we call the perimeter the circumference and ancient mathematicians found its formula to be

The dimensions are only half the perimeter.
In many perimeter problems involving rectangles, you may be asked to find the dimensions. The dimensions of a rectangle are the width by length. For example, picture frames are categorized by their dimensions, such as 8 by 10, or 11 by 14. The sum of the dimensions represents half of the perimeter. The dimensions are only half the perimeter. A picture frame that is an 8 by 10 would have a perimeter of 2(8 + 10) or 36 inches. What would be the perimeter of an 11 by 14 picture frame?

Answer: An 11 by 14 inch picture frame would have a
perimeter of 2(11+14) = 50 inches.

Let x = width, then 10 + 2x = length
Example 1: Suppose we have a rectangle with a perimeter of 26 inches.We are told that the length is 10 more than twice the width.Can we find the dimensions of the rectangle? Define the variables: Let x = width, then x = length The sum of width and length is half the perimeter, thus... x x = 26/2 3x + 10 = 13 3x = 3 x = 1 inch This is the width. 2x + 10 = 2(1) + 10 = 12 which is the length. The dimensions are 1 by 12.

Example 2. The perimeter of a rectangular lot is 440 meters
Example 2. The perimeter of a rectangular lot is 440 meters. If the length is 150 m. find the width. Let x = width 2L + 2W = P 2(150) + 2x = 440 x = 440 x = 2x = 140 x = 70 m, the width or L + W = P/2 150 + x = 220 x = = 70 m, the width

Go ahead and guess now. Remember that 2L + 2W = P or
Example 3. The length of a rectangle is 10 more than twice the width. Find the length and the width if the perimeter is 56 inches. Go ahead and guess now. Remember that 2L + 2W = P or 2(L+W) = P or L + W = P/2 Let x = the width 2x + 10 = the length 2L + 2W = P 2(2x + 10) + 2x = 56 4x x = 56 6x = 6x = 36 x = 6 inches, the width 2x + 10 = 2(6) + 10 = 22 inches, the length Or 2x x = 56/2 3x + 10 = 28 3x = 18 x = 6 inches, the width 2(6)+10=22 inches, the length

Example 4. The perimeter of a triangle is 85 cm
Example 4. The perimeter of a triangle is 85 cm. If the middle side is 5 cm. larger than the smallest side and the large side is twice the smallest side, find each side. 2L + 2W = P only works for rectangles. Perimeter is the distance around the outside of the figure. For a triangle then, the perimeter is the sum of the three sides. Let x = the smallest side x + 5 = the middle side 2x = the largest side x + (x + 5) + 2x = 85 4x = 4x = 80 x = 20 cm, the shortest side x + 5 = 25 cm, the middle side and 2x = 40 cm

How would you find the perimeter of this
architect’s home plan?

Example 5: 20’ 10’ This shape consists of a rectangle with two Overlapping circles. Can we find the perimeter If we know the dimensions of the rectangle?

This shows the outside of the figure which
Is the perimeter that we must find. The perimeter Is actually two lengths of the rectangle and two Semi-circles. 20’ 10’ We need the formula for the circumference of a circle which is C = 2 pi( r) Where r is the radius of the circle. An alternate formula is C = pi d where d is the diameter of the circle. pi is the number which is approximated by

Which is approximately 71.4’
Since the two semicircles are the same size the two parts make one complete circle. Thus the perimeter is P = (10) = Which is approximately 71.4’ 20’ 10’ Is the Greek symbol for Pi

Other four sided figures which have opposite sides equal are:
parallelograms which have opposite sides parallel as well. A rhombus which has four equal sides with opposite sides parallel

What is the difference between rectangles, squares, parallelograms and rhombuses?
A square is a rectangle which has 4 equal sides and every angle is a right angle. Rectangle Square

A rectangle is a parallelogram because opposite sides are equal in both and opposite sides are parallel in both. The difference between the two is the rectangle has four right angles. A parallelogram has no right angles.

A square is a rhombus, because all four sides are equal and opposite sides are parallel
A rhombus is also a parallelogram because opposite sides are equal and parallel. A square has four right angles. A rhombus has no right angles.

If a figure is called a quadrilateral, then that means it
has four sides, but they could all be different measurements and they do not have to have opposite sides parallel.
