# Area and Perimeter of Two Figures

The **perimeter **is the distance around the outside of an object. It is found by adding the lengths of all of the sides of the object together.

The **area **is the amount of surface enclosed by a closed figure.

Area of a rectangle = length × width

Area of a square = side × side

Using these formulae, we can also compare the area or perimeter of two given figures.

**For example**, consider the following figures:

Let's compare their perimeters.

Perimeter of first figure = 5 + 3 + 5 = 13 feet

Perimeter of second figure = 3 + 8 + 3 = 14 feet

Now, 13 feet is less than 14 feet.

So, the perimeter of first figure is less than the perimeter of second figure.
