Perimeter of Polygons

Let’s take our perimeter of polygons quiz and test your knowledge!

The sum of the lengths of all the sides of a shape or object is called the “perimeter” of that shape. We can use tools such as string, ribbon, or wire to determine the perimeter of objects.

Each side of the shape is measured only once when calculating the perimeter. No unmeasured side is left.
