How to Find Perimeter?
It can also be defined as the total distance around the shape. There are different geometry shapes to find the perimeter.
1. Perimeter of the triangle: It is defined as the sum of its boundary or all three sides. The formula to calculate the perimeter of the triangle is:
Perimeter of the triangle = sum of all three sides of a triangle = a + b + c unit(s)
Where a, b, and c are lengths of the sides of a triangle.
2. Perimeter of a square: It is defined as the total length of all four sides of a square. Hence we can find the perimeter by adding all four sides of a square. As all sides of a square are equal. The formula to calculate the perimeter of a square is:
Perimeter of a square = side+side+side+side = (4 × side)units
3. Perimeter of a rectangle: It is defined as the total length or distance of its boundary on all sides. As opposite sides are equal. The formula to calculate the perimeter of a rectangle is:
Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(Length + breadth) units
4. Perimeter of quadrilateral: It is defined as the total length or distance of its boundary on all sides. The formula to calculate the perimeter of a quadrilateral is:
Perimeter of quadrilateral = a + b + c + d unit(s)
Where a, b, c, and d are lengths of the sides of the quadrilateral.
5. Perimeter of a circle: It is defined as its boundary or the complete arc length of the periphery of a circle. It is also known as the circumference of a circle. The formula to calculate the perimeter of a circle is:
The perimeter of a circle = 2 π r
Where r is the radius of the circle.
6. The perimeter of the polygon: It is defined as the sum of all the sides of the n polygon. The formula to calculate the perimeter of the polygon is:
The perimeter of the polygon = sum of all sides of n polygon
Solved examples on perimeter calculator

Example1: Find the perimeter of a triangle if a = 4 units, b = 5 units, and c = 7 units
Solution:
Given: a = 4, b = 5, c = 7
The perimeter of a triangle = sum of all three sides of a triangle
= 4 + 5 +7
= 16 units

Example2: Find the perimeter of a circle whose radius is 5units?
Solution:
Given: r = 5 units
The perimeter of a circle = 2 π r
= 2 × 3.14 × 5
= 31.4 units 
Example3: Find the perimeter of an 8sided polygon whose length of the side is 7 units?
solution:
Given: 8sided polygon, length = 7 units
= 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7
= 7 × 8
= 56 units
Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the perimeter for:
