PERIMETER OF A RECTANGLE

__PERIMETER OF A RECTANGLE -__

**The perimeter of a rectangle is the total distance around its outer boundary, which is the sum of the lengths of all four sides of the rectangle.**

**If we let "l" be the length of the rectangle, and "w" be the width of the rectangle, then the formula for the perimeter (P) of a rectangle is:**

**P = 2l + 2w**

**Alternatively, we can also use the formula:**

**P = 2(l + w)**

**Both formulas are equivalent and give the same result. To use either formula, we simply need to know the length and width of the rectangle, and then substitute those values into the formula to calculate the perimeter.**

**The perimeter of a rectangle is the total distance around the outside of the rectangle. It is the sum of the lengths of all four sides of the rectangle.**

**If the length of the rectangle is "l" and the width is "w", then the perimeter of the rectangle (P) can be calculated using the formula:**

**P = 2(l + w)**

**This formula works because a rectangle has two pairs of equal sides. So, to find the perimeter, we simply add up the lengths of both pairs of sides.**

**The perimeter of a rectangle is the total distance around the outside of the shape. To find the perimeter of a rectangle, you need to add up the lengths of all four sides.**

**If the length of the rectangle is "l" and the width is "w", then the formula for the perimeter "P" is:**

**P = 2l + 2w**

**or**

**P = 2(l + w)**

**For example, if a rectangle has a length of 10 units and a width of 6 units, then its perimeter would be:**

**P = 2(10 + 6),**

**P = 2(16),**

**P = 32**

**Therefore, the perimeter of the rectangle is 32 units. (Ans.)**

**So, to find the perimeter of a rectangle, you simply add up the length and width of the rectangle, multiply the sum by 2, and you will get the perimeter.**

**For example, if a rectangle has a length of 6 units and a width of 4 units, then its perimeter would be:**

**P = 2(6 + 4) = 2(10) = 20 units (Ans.)**
