Perimeter and Area – Formulas and Examples

Perimeter and Area – Formulas and Examples

Perimeter and area are two of the most important properties of two-dimensional figures. The perimeter defines the distance around the limits of the figure, while the area indicates the region occupied by the figure. These properties are used to describe the figure and...

Area and Perimeter of Geometric Figures

Area and perimeter are two of the most important measurements of geometric figures. The perimeter represents the sum total of the lengths of the sides of a geometric figure. On the other hand, the area represents the region covered by the figure. The perimeter is a...

Important Parts of a Circle

A circumference is defined as a two-dimensional figure that has a completely round shape. Circles are characterized by having all their points with the same distance from a fixed point. The fixed point is called the center and the distance from the center to the...

Elements of a Circle with Diagrams

Circles are round two-dimensional figures. Its main characteristic is that each point on the circumference is located at a constant distance from a fixed point. The constant distance is called the radius and the fixed point is called the center of the circumference....

Parts of a Geometric Pyramid

Pyramids are three-dimensional figures that are created by a polygon as its base and triangles as its other faces, where all the triangles meet at a common vertex. The fundamental parts of a pyramid are the base, the lateral faces, the height, the slant height, and...

Surface Area of a Pentagonal Pyramid – Formulas and Examples

The surface area of a pentagonal pyramid represents the entire surface occupied by the pyramid in three-dimensional space. This is a two-dimensional measure, so we use square units to represent it. The surface area of any geometric figure is calculated by adding the...
