Find The Perimeter 4 feet 6 feet
How do we find the perimeter of a rectangle? 4 feet 6 feet

4 feet 6 feet Perimeter = 2 x 6 + 2 x 4 Perimeter = 12 + 8 = 20 feet
Perimeter = length + width + length + width = 20 feet Perimeter= 2 X length + 2 X width 4 feet 6 feet Perimeter = 2 x x 4 Perimeter = = 20 feet

How are perimeter and area different ???
How do you calculate perimeter and area ???
