1.7 Perimeter, Circumference, & Area
WHAT’S IMPORTANT: --Be able to find the perimeter & area of common plane figures. --Be able to use a problem solving plan.

On the following slides, you will see the perimeter, circumference, and area formulas for some basic geometric shapes. We will use these formulas throughout the lesson. Perimeter & circumference use units such as centimeters (cm), meters (m), inches (in), feet (ft), yards (yd), & miles (mi). The measurements of area use units such as square centimeters (cm2), square inches (in2), & so on.

38 in. 84 sq. in. 25.12 cm. 50.24 sq. cm. 200 mm 119 sq ft.

9.7 in 5.2 sq. in. 15.7 cm 19.63 sq. cm. 547.2 mm sq. ft.

Example Find the perimeter & area of the rectangle shown
P = 2x + 2y P = 2(13) + 2(4) P = P = 34 in. A = xy A = 13(4) A = 52 in2 4 in. 13 in.

Example: The diameter of a circle is shown. find the radius
Example: The diameter of a circle is shown. find the radius. then use that to find the circumference and area. r = (1/2)d r = (1/2)(14) r = 7in. C = 2∏r C = 2∏(7) C = 2(3.14)(7) C = in. A = ∏r2 A = (3.14)(72) A = (3.14)(49) = in2 14 in. F

Example Plot the Points & Find the area & perimeter of the triangle defined by D(1,2), E(6,2), & F(3,5) Plot the points. Draw the height from point F to the base DE. Label the point G Point G has the coordinates (3,2)

Cont. Example... To find the area, we need to find the lengths of the base (DE) & the height (FG) DE = = 5 FG = = 3 A = (1/2) A = (1/2)(5)(3) A = (1/2)(15) A = 7.5 sq. units

Plot the Points & Find the area & perimeter of the triangle defined by D(1,2), E(6,2), & F(3,5)
We need to find the lengths of all sides. We know the base is 5 units Now we must find the lengths of EF & DF.

Plot the Points & Find the area & perimeter of the triangle defined by D(1,2), E(6,2), & F(3,5)
Add to find the perimeter Perimeter = units

find the area of the figure below
Draw a horizontal line to separate the figure into 3 non-overlapping figures: a rectangle & 2 squares.
