## What is Area?

Area is the total region enclosed by a closed figure.

## What is Perimeter?

Perimeter is defined as the total length around a closed figure. The total sum of the lengths of the sides of a closed geometrical shape gives us its perimeter.

## What is the Perimeter of a rectangle?

The Perimeter of a rectangle is twice the sum of length and breadth.

Consider a rectangle with length ‘L’ and breadth ‘B’ as shown in the figure.

The perimeter of the rectangle = L + B + L + B

= 2L + 2B

Therefore, the perimeter of the rectangle = 2(L + B) For example,
