# What is the perimeter of the polygon in the diagram?

Perimeter and area are some of the most important topics in mathematics. Different shapes have different formulas for area and perimeter. They have many practical applications too. Let's solve a problem related to the perimeter of a polygon.

## Answer: The perimeter of the given figure is 42 cm.

Let's understand the solution.

**Explanation:**

To find the perimeter of a shape, we add the length of its sides.

Hence, in the given figure, the perimeter = 9 + 2 + 6 +10 + 3 + 12 = 42.
