 The sum of all the four sides of a rectangle is called as the perimeter of a rectangle. Perimeter of a rectangle is the total length of the boundary of the rectangle.

Steps for Calculating Perimeter of Rectangle

Step 1 :

Formula for calculating perimeter of rectangle,

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 * (l + w)

l = length of the rectangle w = width of the rectangle.

Step 2 :

Plug in the values in formula and solve it further.

Examples for Perimeter of Rectangle

1. If a length of the perimeter of rectangle is 7cm and width is 5cm, then find the perimeter of the rectangle?

Step 1 :

Given :

Length (l) = 7cm.

Width (w) = 5cm.

perimeter of the rectangle = ?

Step 2 :

Plugging the values in the formula.

perimeter of the rectangle= 2 * (l + b) .

perimeter of the rectangle = 2 * (7 cm + 5 cm).

perimeter of the rectangle = 2 * (12 cm) .

Perimeter of rectangle = 24cm.

2. If a length of the perimeter of rectangle is 9cm and width is 6cm, then find the perimeter of the rectangle?

Step 1 :

Given :

Length (l) = 9cm.

Width (w) = 6cm.

perimeter of the rectangle = ?

Step 2 :

Plugging the values in the formula.

perimeter of the rectangle= 2 * (l + b) .

perimeter of the rectangle= 2 * (9 cm+ 6 cm).

perimeter of the rectangle= 2 * 15 cm.
