Lesson Excerpt

The perimeter is the distance around an object. A square has four sides. To determine the perimeter of a square you can add the length of all four sides of the square together.

Imagine a square with a distance of 4 inches on the bottom side. Since every side of a square is an equal distance then all four sides are 4 inches in length.

To determine the perimeter of the square above just add the four sides together. Since every side of a square is the same, the perimeter is:

4 inches + 4 inches + 4 inches + 4 inches =16 inches

The perimeter of the square is 16 inches.

Finding the perimeter of a rectangle can be done in a similar fashion. However, not all sides to a rectangle are the same length.
