The distance around an enclosed shape is called the perimeter. The amount of space enclosed inside a shape is called the area.

Area of a rectangle base height Area of rectangle = base × height

Area of a triangle base Area of triangle = ½ × base × height height

Area of a parallelogram A parallelogram can be made into a rectangle. base height Area of parallelogram = base × height

Area of a trapezium Two identical trapeziums can be made into a parallelogram. a h Area of parallelogram = ½ (a + b) h b b a
