# Perimeter and Area of Irregular Shape

In this section we will discuss about Perimeter and Area of Irregular Shape.

Perimeter : It is the length of the boundary of a closed figure.
In other words, we can say that the Perimeter is the total length of the boundary or sum of all sides.
It is measured in m (meter) , cm(centimeter) , Km (kilometer ) and miles.

Examples on Perimeter and Area of Irregular Shape :

1)

Perimeter= AB + BQ + QC + CD + DS + SE + EF + FR + RG + GH + HP + PA
= 1 + 3 + 3 + 1 + 3 + 3 + 1 + 3 + 3 + 1 + 3 + 3
= 28 cm

2) Find the Perimeter of the given figure.

Solution :
Perimeter = AB + BC + CD + DE + EF + FA

= 10 cm + 8 cm + 2 cm + 4 cm + 8 cm + 2 cm

= 34 cm

3) Calculate the perimeter of the following figure:

Solution :
Perimeter = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 10 cm

4) Find the area of figure.

Solution :

Area of the figure = Area of I + Area of II + Area of III

Now, Area of figure I = 3.4 x 2.5

= 8.5 cm
2

Area of figure II = (6 - 3)x(3.4 - 2)

= 3 x 1.4

= 4.2 cm
2

Area of figure III = 3 x 1

= 3 cm
2

Total area = 8.5 + 4.2 + 3

= 15.7 cm
