Polygons

Polygons are some-sided figures, with line segments as their sides. Learn how to find the perimeter of a polygon in this article.

Step by step guide to find 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 \(=2(l+w)\)

Example 1:

Find the perimeter of following regular hexagon.

Solution:

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

Example 2:

Find the perimeter of following regular hexagon.

Solution:

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