measures the space(square units) inside

a 2-D shape or object.Usally rectangles or squares

how to get area of rectangles and squares

length x width = area

examples

4 x 4 =

**Perimiter**

measures the distance (or length) around the outside of an object

differint ways to solve perimiter poblems

12+12+9+9=42

12 x 2=24 9 x 2=18

24+18=42

12+9=21 21 x 2=42

what to do when all sides are equal

**Volume**

example:

given length or width of side x # of sides= perimiter of object

measures the number of cubic units inside a 3-D shape; how much space an object takes up

how to get volume of retangular prism and cube

length x width x hight=volume

example:
