Perimeter of a polygon is the sum of the measurements of its sides.

Rectangle Perimeter

The perimeter of a rectangle is calculated as follows:

B - base or length

H - height or width

Perimeter = 2b + 2h = 2 (b + h)

Perimeter of the regular polygons

Equilateral triangleSquare
P = 1 + 1 + 1
P = 3 · l
P = 1 + 1 + 1 + 1
P = 4 · l
PentagonHexagon
P = 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1
P = 5 · l
P = 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1
P = 6 · l

l - measurement of regular polygon side
P - perimeter of regular polygon

For an n-sided polygon we have:

P = n · l Next: Length of the circumference
