Perimeter 
20020605 

Tava pose la question : I'm a grade four student from St. Mary school. In class we've been dicussing perimeters. So this is what we did; First we each got a piece of paper in the shape of the geoboards and our teacher told us to find as many different shapes of area of 12 square units. During this time we were given to find perimeters of shapes that had twelve square units one of our classmates discovered the biggest perimeter possible with twelve square units of 26 units. Another classmate discovered the smallest perimeter of fourteen units. Here's a question: Why are all the shapes with fourteen units all the same shape? and why are all the shapes with twentysix units can be different? After we found the biggest and smallest shapes our teacher told us we each had to find at least one shape of the biggest and smallest. After we each foud a shape with a perimeter of twentysix and fourteen we had to find different shapes with different perimeters. During that time we discovered different perimeters. What we found was fourteen all the way up to twentysix, but they all went by two's. Why didn't they count up by 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 etc? I think it's because the area is an even number. See if you added one "block" or "square" to it you always add three because at least one of the sides is together with another side. Whyare all the perimeters all even numbers?

Area Calculation

For example if you build a rectangle 10x40 the enclosed area is 400 square meters.

I know this is true, but can anyone explain IN ENGLISH why this is so? Harley Weston lui répond.
