## What does the scale factor between two similar figures tell you about the perimeters?

Perimeters: The ratio of the perimeters is the same as the scale factor. In fact, the ratio of any part of two similar shapes (diagonals, medians, midsegments, altitudes, etc.) is the same as the scale factor. You square the ratio because area is a two-dimensional measurement.

## What is perimeter explain with examples?

Perimeter is the total length of the sides of a two-dimensional shape. Other examples may include finding the total length of the boundary of the soccer field or the length of the crochet or ribbon required to cover the border of a table mat.

**What are the 3 formulas for perimeter?**

Perimeter, Area, and Volume

Table 1 . Perimeter Formulas | ||
---|---|---|

Shape | Formula | Variables |

Square | P=4s | s is the length of the side of the square. |

Rectangle | P=2L+2W | L and W are the lengths of the rectangle’s sides (length and width). |

Triangle | a+b+c | a,b , and c are the side lengths. |

**How do you find the perimeter of an irregular shape with variables?**

If a shape is irregular then it has angles that are not all the same size. To find the perimeter of an irregular shape, we simply add up each of its outer sides. units. will be a length measurement (e.g. centimetres).

### What is the scale factor of similar figures?

Suppose you have two similar figures , one larger than the other. The scale factor is the ratio of the length of a side of one figure to the length of the corresponding side of the other figure. Here, XYUV=123=4 . So, the scale factor is 4 .

### How do similar figures relate in terms of sides perimeters angles areas and volumes?

If two polygons are similar, their corresponding sides, altitudes, medians, diagonals, angle bisectors and perimeters are all in the same ratio. If two solids are similar, the ratio of their volumes is equal to the cube of the ratio of their corresponding sides.

**How do you find the perimeter of irregular shapes?**

To find the perimeter around irregular figures, add the lengths of the sides. If the sides of the figures include circles, use the circumference formula to calculate the length of that portion of the figure and add it to the total of the other sides.

**What is perimeter and area with examples?**

Perimeter is measured in linear units. For example, if the dimensions are in inches, then the perimeter is expressed as inches. Example: Area of a square park is side of the park × side of the park or side2. Example: The perimeter of the square park is the sum of all the 4 sides of the park or 4 × side.

#### What is a formula of perimeter?

The perimeter of a rectangle is equal to twice the sum of its length and breadth. Hence, the formula for the perimeter of a rectangle is: Perimeter of a Rectangle, (P) = 2(l + b) units.

#### How do you find the perimeter of different objects?

Multiply one side of a square by 4 to find the perimeter. For example, if one side measures 2 inches, then 2 inches multiplied by 4 equals a perimeter of 8 inches. Multiply the length of a rectangle by 2, multiply the width by 2 and then add them to find the perimeter.
