The perimeter of a thing is the distance surrounding it. Your house, for example, has a fenced-in yard. The perimeter of the fence is the length of the fence. If your yard is 50 feet by 50 feet, your fence will be 200 feet long.

There are two types of perimeters: internal and external. The internal perimeter of a room is the wall structure including doors and windows. The external perimeter is everything outside the building. Roads, sidewalks, and gardens are examples of external environment. The area inside the external perimeter but outside the internal perimeter is public property. So, if someone were to walk into your backyard, they would be on public property.

Perimeters can also be classified by function. For example, the domestic animal's perimeter is that part of **its territory** which it guards against intrusion by **other animals** or people. The border of a city or town is made up of **its walls** or fences. The political boundary between countries is called their border. The military border between countries is called their frontier.

Finally, perimeters can be divided into **three general categories**: physical, economic, and legal.

Physical perimeters include walls, fences, and ditches. These represent **the least invasive means** of protecting something because you are limiting access rather than searching people or things.

The distance around the exterior of a form is defined as its perimeter. The perimeter of a form is calculated by summing the lengths of all its sides. The lines around the border of a soccer pitch represent the field's perimeter. The curb surrounding **a parking lot** denotes the lot's perimeter.

The perimeter of **a multisided, two-dimensional enclosed form** is defined mathematically as the total length of its edges (polygon). It is referred to as a circumference in the case of circular forms.

The perimeter of a two-dimensional form is the distance around it. To get the perimeter of a regular polygon, add **the side lengths** together. Now you can play.

Any figure's perimeter can be defined in a variety of ways. The perimeter of any polygon is the entire distance along the polygon's outside. The perimeter of a figure is the entire length of all its sides. A perimeter is the length of a figure's border. The term "perimeter" comes from a Greek word meaning "around," so the perimeter of a shape is the outline that surrounds it.

The perimeter of a figure is the sum of the lengths of its borders. The perimeter of a polygon is the sum of the lengths of its sides. Because the perimeter of a circle is equal to 2πr, where r is the radius of the circle, we can say that the area of a circle is equal to the square of its radius. This means that the area of a circle is constant, which means that it does not change if you add or remove tissue from it. However, the circumference of a circle increases when you add or remove tissue from it, so the ratio of the area to **the circumference changes** if you change the size of the circle.

In mathematics, the perimeter of a polygon is the sum of the lengths of **its sides**. In geometry, the perimeter of a polygon is the distance around the boundary of the polygon. In graph theory, the perimeter of a graph is the length of **its largest simple cycle**.

The perimeter of an enclosed space is denoted by the term periphery. A perimeter, which derives from the Latin words "around" (peri) and "measure" (metron), is essentially any form of border that measures around the shape. The term is used in geometry to describe the boundary of a plane figure or surface. The four main types of perimeters are: circumferential, radial, longitudinal, and planar.

Circumferential perimeters are the most common type of perimeter. They are formed when measuring around a curve, such as a circle or ellipse. The entire circumference is included in the calculation for determining the area and volume of the enclosing space. For example, if you were to measure the radius of a circle and then estimate the circumference by multiplying the radius by $2\pi$, you would need to add up **all the fractions** obtained by dividing the circumference into $1000$. For example, if the circle had a radius of **10 feet**, the circumference would be about 29,000 feet. You could reduce this number by using 30 foot radii instead, but since there are 360 degrees in a circle, this would give **the same total length** of perimeter as the original calculation.

Radial perimeters are measured around the outside edge or radius of a shape.

The smallest distance around a form is defined as its perimeter. The entire distance traveled if we walk along the sides of a form is its perimeter. The perimeter unit is the same as the length unit. It is called "perimeter" because it describes the complete boundary of **any shape**.

The word "perimeter" comes from the Greek perimetros, which means "around everything." That is why the term "perimeter guard" or "perimeter fence" is used to describe a fence or wall that surrounds **some property** or area.

As you can see, the concept of perimeter has **many applications** in science and technology. In mathematics, the perimeter of a shape is used to describe its bounding surface. In geometry, the perimeter of a closed plane figure is the sum of its side lengths. In physics, the perimeter of a body refers to the total distance around the body. As well, the perimeter of an electrical circuit is the sum of the distances between **each point** on one side of the circuit board and its corresponding point on the other side. Perimeters are also used in biology to describe the circumference of plants or animals.

In architecture, the perimeter of a room is the exterior wall or roof structure comprising its floor and ceiling.

The distance surrounding a form is defined as its perimeter. It is the entire length of the sides of the form. You can find the perimeter of any closed shape, such as a square or circle, by adding the lengths of its sides. The formula for calculating the perimeter of a polygon is very simple: add **all the sides** of the polygon together.

This lesson will help you learn how to calculate the perimeter of shapes such as squares and circles. After reading this lesson, you will know how to add two different types of lines to determine the total perimeter of a figure.

As you can see from the picture below, there are two types of lines used in determining the total perimeter of a figure: vertical and horizontal. Vertical lines run between **the highest point** of one section of the figure to **the lowest point** of the next section. Horizontal lines run across the figure from side to side.

To find the total perimeter of the figure, simply add up the numbers on the sides of the figure that are adjacent to each other. In **this case**, there are four sides to add, so the total perimeter is 4 + 2*3 = 10.
