I do not understand perimeter and area. Can you help me?I have lots of trouble with perimeter and area at school,and it is getting harder. Do you have any tips? Thank you very much. Also,I have a hard time remembering facts like what pi equals and it is getting on my nerves. Thank you for helping me. #2 20060108 09:21:17
Re: I do not understand perimeter and area. Can you help me?For "perimeter" you could think: how long would a piece of string be to go around the edge of the circle (or square, or whatever shape).

Re: I do not understand perimeter and area. Can you help me?Perimeter is the length of the border of a shape. You add up the lengths of all the sides to get the perimeter. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
