# AREA AND PERIMETER

Area :

The amount of space inside the boundary of a two- dimensional shape such as a triangle or circle.

Perimeter :

Perimeter is the distance around a two-dimensional shape such as square or rectangle or triangle.

## Square

A square is a four-sided polygon where the lengths of all the four sides will be equal and each vertex angle will be right angle or 90°  as shown below. When the side length is given :

Area of a Square = a2

When the length of the diagonal is given :

Area of a Square = 1/2 ⋅ d2

Perimeter of a Square = 4a

## Rectangle

A rectangle is a four-sided polygon where the lengths of opposite sides will be equal and each vertex angle will be 90° or right angle as shown below. Area of a Rectangle = l ⋅ w

Perimeter of a Rectangle = 2(l + w)

## Equilateral Triangle

An equilateral triangle is a three-sided polygon where the lengths of all the three sides will be equal and each vertex angle will be 60° as shown below. Area of an Equilateral Triangle = √3/4 ⋅ a2

Perimeter of an Equilateral Triangle = 3a

## Scalene Triangle

An scalene triangle is a three-sided polygon where the all the three sides will have unequal lengths and the measures of all the three  angles will be different as shown below. Area of a Scalene Triangle = √[s(s - a)(s - b)(s - c)]

where s = (a + b + c)/2

Perimeter of a Scalene Triangle = a + b + c

A quadrilateral is a four-sided polygon as shown below. Area of a Quadrilateral = 1/2 ⋅ d ⋅ (h1 + h2)

Perimeter of a Quadrilateral = a + b + c + d

## Parallelogram

A parallelogram is a four-sided polygon where the opposite sides will be equal and parallel as shown below. Area of a Parallelogram = b ⋅ h

Perimeter of a Parallelogram = 2(a + b)

## Rhombus

A rhombus is a four-sided polygon where the lengths of all the four sides will be equal and opposite sides will be parallel as shown below. Area of a Rhombus = 1/2 ⋅ d1 ⋅ d2

Perimeter of a Rhombus = 4a

## Trapezoid

A trapezoid is a four-sided polygon which has a pair of opposite sides parallel as shown below. Area of a Trapezoid = 1/2 ⋅ h ⋅ (a + b)

Perimeter of a Trapezoid = a + b + c + d

## Circle

A circle is a round plane figure whose boundary (the circumference) consists of points equidistant from a fixed point (the center). The distance between the center and any point on the circumference is called radius (r). Area of a Circle = πr2

Perimeter of a Circle = 2πr

## Semicircle

A semicircle is a half of a circle or of its circumference as shown below. Area of a Semicircle = πr2/2

Perimeter of a Semicircle = πr + 2r

A quadrant is a one-fourth of a circle. Area of a Quadrant = πr2/4

Perimeter of a Quadrant = πr/2 + 2r

## Sector of a Circle

A sector of a circle is a part of the interior of the circle enclosed by an arc and two radii. Area of a Sector = θ/360° ⋅ πr2

Length of the Arc AB = θ/360° ⋅ 2πr

Perimeter a Sector = (θ/360° ⋅ 2πr) + 2r

## Regular Polygon

regular polygon is a  polygon that is equiangular (all interior angles are equal in measure) and equilateral (all sides have the same length). Area = 1/2 ⋅ (Apothem x Perimeter)

Perimeter = No. of sides ⋅ Length of each side
