The perimeter is the boarder line of the shape.

To find it you need to add all the sides together.

The area of the shape is what is inside of the shape.

To find it you need to Times the length with the width

The videos made me get confused.

Area is dimension times dimension.

Perimeter is add the dimensions times two.

hi

A okay i got it area is dimension times dimension and perimeter is dimensions times 2

One way to find out the perimeter of a shape is to add the dimensions together, and then multiply that by two. For example, if you have a three by 10 rectangle, you would add three + 10, and then multiply the answer (13) by two. The perimeter of a three by 10 rectangle is 26.

One way to find out the area of a 2D shape is to multiply the two dimensions together. If we were still using the three by 10 rectangle from before, you would multiply the dimensions together, three x 10, which equals 30. The area of the three by 10 rectangle is 30!

Yay! Enjoy the snow, everyone!

I think these videos were not confusing and it was really easy to understand. But there was 1 thing that I didn’t understand how they did it in I think it was in video number two but what I didn’t understand was that when you have 1/2 times 8 shape and you were going to find out the area and the perimeter of it I had the most difficult time understanding it but even if I tried to think about what the person was saying it was really really hard.

You could find out what perimeter is by doing,”(Number+Number)XNumber” which means adding the length of the 2 different sides and multiplying it by 2. You could find out the area by multiplying the 2 different lengths of the sides.

The perimeter is how long are all the sides together. The area is how much the inside of the shape is.

it was a little bit confusing but I learned a bit.

Before I watched the video, I didn’t know that even though you cut the shape in many pieces, the total area is still the same.

A perimeter is the boarder line of a shape. To find the perimeter you have to

Length+width+length+width.

An area is the inside on the shape. To find the area you have to

LengthXWidth

Hello people this video didn’t get me getting what it’s saying…..

(=~=*)

Did you watch them?
