**Calculate the area of the composite figure by adding up the areas of the smaller shapes that make up the composite figure**.

## How do you find the perimeter of a polygon composed of rectangles?

Perimeter of a rectangle =

**2 Ã— (length + width)**## How do you find the perimeter of Year 5?

The perimeter of a shape is always calculated by

**adding up the length of each of the sides**. In Year 5 and 6, children might be given shapes like this one and asked to find their perimeter: In this case, they need to work out the lengths of the edges that are unlabelled, by looking at the other labelled edges.## Is the perimeter of rectangle?

The perimeter of a rectangle is

**the total length of all the sides of the rectangle**. Hence, we can find the perimeter by adding all four sides of a rectangle. Perimeter of the given rectangle is a + b + a + b.## What is perimeter of shape?
