## Step by step guide to find the perimeter of Polygons

**Perimeter of a square**\(=4×side=4s\)**Perimeter of a rectangle**\(=2(width \ + \ length)\)**Perimeter of trapezoid**\(= a+b+c+d\)**Perimeter of a regular hexagon**\(=6a\)**Perimeter of a parallelogram**\(=2(l+w)\)

### Polygons – Example 1:

Find the perimeter of following regular hexagon.

**Solution**:

**The perimeter of Pentagon **\(=6a\)

Perimeter of Pentagon \(=6a=6×5=30\) m

### Polygons – Example 2:

Find the perimeter of following regular hexagon.

**Solution**:

**Perimeter of Pentagon **\(=6a\)

Perimeter of Pentagon \(=6a=6×3=18\) m
