1 Free Pre-Algebra Lesson 3 page 1 Lesson 3 Perimeter and Area Enclose a flat space; say with a fence or wall. The length of the fence (how far you walk around the edge) is the perimeter, and the measure of the space inside is the area. The Practical Importance of Area and Perimeter Finding a Perimeter We know how to measure length. So to find the perimeter of an enclosed space we just measure the edge all the way around. You can measure each straight side separately and add the measurements, or take a long flexible ruler and wrap it all the way around like a ribbon. Either way, the total length around the edge is the perimeter. Example: Find the perimeter of each figure. Assume measurements are in centimeters. Count the centimeters around the edge. The perimeter is 20 cm. Add up the measurements of the sides. 4 cm + 4 cm + 2 cm + 1 cm + 2 cm + 5 cm = 20 cm The perimeter is 20 cm. Finding an Area We ve measured length with a ruler. But the practical use of space, filling the field with cows, or corn plants, or houses, requires a different kind of measurement. These things are not infinitely thin they have length AND width. The measure of the space inside the field should take this into account Area can be communicated with non-standard units. People say, That ranch runs 2000 head of cattle, or The theater seats 250 people, or The microchip was smaller than a penny. The cow, the seated person, and the penny use fixed amounts of space to which we can compare other spaces. In mathematics, area is a measure of the size of the space using square units. The number of squares that fill the space is the area. Same Perimeter, Different Area! If you count the lengths of fencing between the posts, you can see that each farmer used the same amount of fencing material to enclose his field. (Each field has the same perimeter.) But the two fields hold different numbers of cows. (They have different areas.) Moral: You cannot find the area of a field just by knowing the perimeter.

2 Free Pre-Algebra Lesson 3 page 2 Comparing Length Units and Area (Square) Units Differentiating between length and area and using the appropriate units for each can be confusing. The square units for area are built from the units of length, but the two are not interchangeable. Sometimes areas have a fixed width (for example, a bolt of fabric is 44 inches wide) and so only the length is used ( give me a yard of that pink satin ). Many students remember that there are formulas to find areas that use lengths for calculation, and so associate areas with lengths. But it s important to keep the difference clear in your mind conceptually. To say an area is 3 feet is silly; it s like saying a person is 3 feet old. A foot is not a unit of time nor is it a unit of area. Standard units of length are: inches, feet, yards, miles (U.S. system) millimeters, centimeters, meters, kilometers (metric system). Standard units for area are: square inches, square feet, square yards, square miles; but also acres (1 acre is 43,560 square feet) square millimeters, square centimeters, square meters, square kilometers; also hectares. Units of Length and Square Units of Area Centimeters On the ruler, only the edge matters. We re measuring length, and disregarding width. Square Centimeters To find area, we use square units. Each square has length 1 cm and width 1 cm, and has area 1 square centimeter. Figures on a Grid The easiest way to see and count perimeter and area is when a figure has straight sides and is placed on a grid of square units. (Think of a floor tiled with squares of linoleum.) The area is the number of squares. The lines of the grid can be used as rulers to measure the sides. Example: Find the perimeter and area of the space enclosed by the figure. The size of the picture is reduced, but the original grid is in square centimeters. To find the perimeter, find the length around the figure. Count every length corners have more than one edge! The perimeter of this figure is 20 cm. To find the area, count the squares inside the figure. The area of this figure is 12 square cm.

3 Free Pre-Algebra Lesson 3 page 3 The Perimeter of a Rectangle Because a rectangle has two sets of equal sides, we can do less measuring work to find the perimeter. When one length and one width have been measured, we don t have to keep measuring, because we know the sides across from each other are equal. Walking around the rectangle (in our mind), beginning at the top left, we d find the perimeter by adding Length + Width + Length + Width Rectangles In a rectangle, the sides across from each other are equal. The measurement of the top or the bottom side is called the length of the rectangle. The measurement of the left or the right side is called the width of the rectangle. On the other hand, we could add the two lengths and then the two widths: 2(Length) + 2(Width) + Or we could add the length and width, then double that: 2(Length + Width) + All these different approaches should yield the same result: the perimeter of the rectangle. Example: Find the perimeter of the rectangle. Just for a reference, let s count the perimeter as in any other figure. Now, let s just count the length and width. (This is only half as much counting as before.) By counting units of length all the way around, the perimeter is 14 cm. By counting the units, find the length is 4 cm and the width is 3 cm. Using the length and width, Length + Width + Length + Width 2(Length) + 2(Width) 2(Length + Width) 4 cm + 3 cm. + 4 cm + 3 cm 2( 4 cm ) + 2( 3 cm ) 2( 4 cm + 3 cm) 8 cm + 6 cm 2 ( 7 cm) = 14 cm = 14 cm = 14 cm

4 Free Pre-Algebra Lesson 3 page 4 The Area of a Rectangle Because of the special properties of rectangles, we can find the area in an easier way than counting. (Although it s pretty simple to count small areas on a grid, it s boring to count very large areas, like 43,560 square feet.) This is the same rectangle with length 4 cm and width 3 cm used in the perimeter example, but with the grid revealed, to make finding the area easier. To find the area, count the squares. Or notice 3 rows of 4 squares each. Or notice 4 columns of 3 squares each. The area is 12 square cm. 3 ( 4 square cm) = 12 square cm 4 ( 3 square cm) = 12 square cm The reason there are 4 squares in each row is because the length of the rectangle is 4 cm. The reason there are 3 rows is because the width of the rectangle is 3 cm. This is why we can calculate the area of a rectangle by multiplying Length x Width. Area = Length x Width Example: Find the area of a rectangle with length 6 cm and width 4 cm. We could draw the rectangle on a grid and count the squares: There are 4 rows with 6 squares in each row: 24 squares. The area is 24 square centimeters. Or we can find the area by multiplying Length x Width: Length x Width (6 cm) (4 cm) 24 square cm Notice that there is no need to sketch the rectangle. Keep Paying Attention to the Units When we multiply 3 rows of 4 squares, it s clear that the units are squares. But if you calculate the area using the shortcut Length x Width (4 cm) (3 cm) you re using length and width, measured in centimeters, to find an area, measured in square centimeters. This is a major reason many people are confused about the difference between length units and area units. When lengths and widths are added, (as when we found a perimeter), the result is also a length. 4 cm + 3 cm = 7 cm But when lengths and widths are multiplied, the units become units of area. (4 cm) (3 cm) = 12 square cm

5 Free Pre-Algebra Lesson 3 page 5 Formulas The shortcuts we reasoned out and used to find the area and perimeter of a rectangle by measuring only the length and width are called formulas. Instead of telling how to calculate the perimeter and area of a specific rectangle, a formula gives the general calculation for any rectangle. We don t have to remember our whole thought process every time we want to find an area or perimeter, we can just use the formula. Formulas are a good way to start thinking about algebra. If we abbreviate the words to just their initials, things suddenly look quite mathematical: and Perimeter = 2(Length) + 2(Width) Area = Length x Width P = 2L + 2W Notice how condensed the algebraic notation is. The words are now just single letters. Multiplication is shown by putting the number right next to the letter, or the two letters right next to each other. But the algebraic formula still represents the same calculation as the formula given in words. If you have a rectangle, and you know the measurements for length and width, you can find the area and perimeter by plugging those measurements into the formula, just as we did in the examples before. Formula Summary Perimeter = 2(Length) + 2(Width) P = 2L + 2W or Perimeter = 2(Length + Width) P = 2(L + W) Area = Length x Width Using the Formulas Perimeter = 2(6 in) + 2(5 in) = 12 in + 10 in = 22 in or Perimeter = 2(6 in + 5 in) = 2 ( 11 in ) = 22 in Area = 6 in x 5 in = 30 square inches
