## Perimeter Formulas

A perimeter is indeed a series circuit that surrounds, outlines, or embraces a two-dimensional structure and one length. The circumference of an ellipse or a circle is its perimeter.

The route or border around a shape, often known as the contour of a shape, is known as the perimeter. Different types of shapes are encountered in geometry 2D shapes.

Every shape’s circumference varies depending on its measurements. The circumference of a circle is only stated as the diameter of the ring. However, the process for calculating the circumference of all polygons is just the same: we must add all of their sides.

If we really need to determine the length of both a cylindrical or spherical field, then may use the circumference formula and the measurements to find it quickly. Let’s look at a formula for calculating the perimeter of all two-dimensional structures.

By summing the side lengths of the 2-d object, perimeter calculations are being used to determine the distance around it. The overall length of the borders of various shapes is referred to as the perimeter. If we know the shape’s dimensions, we can calculate the perimeter formula.

**Solved Examples**

**Q1:** Determine the perimeter of such an equilateral triangle with 7 cm sides?

**Solution:**

The side length of an equilateral triangle equals 7 cm.

The equilateral triangle, as we all know, has all of its sides of equal length.

As a result, the triangle’s perimeter equals a+b+c.

In this case, a = b = c.

As a result, Perimeter = 3a P = 3 x 7 = 21 cm is calculated.
