### MEAP Preparation - Grade 5 Mathematics2.11 Perimeter, Area and Volume Facts

 Perimeter is defined as the distance around a figure. Perimeter of a rectangle is 2(l+w) metres, where l is the length and w is the width. Perimeter of a square is 4a units where a is the length of the side. Area of rectangle is l x w units2. Area of square is a x a units2. The space occupied by an object is called volume. Volume of a cube is l x w x h units3. Directions: Answer the following. Also write at least 5 examples of your own and draw a square and rectangle and find its area and perimeter.
 Q 1: Perimeter of a rectangle P = 2 x (l + w) can also be written asP = l + l + w + wP = w + 2lP = l + 2w Q 2: The length and width of a rectangle are called itsline segmentdimensionstriangle Q 3: You always measure area in square units.
