## How To Find The **Perimeter Of A Parallelogram**

Let's look at the geometric characteristics of a parallelogram. But first, please review the definition of Perimeter Of Two-Dimensional Shapes, and Right Angle.

- A parallelogram is very similar to a rectangle;
a rectangle has vertical sides, a parallelogram does not. A parallelogram
four sides; two side have the same length - let's call these two sides the
**Length**(L). - The other two sides have the same length but their length
are different from the first lengths - let's call these two sides the
**Width**(W). - Special note, both the height and base lengths of a parallelogram must be greater than zero.

**Perimeter Of A Parallelogram Formula**

Formula = Length + Width + Length + Width =

Formula = 2 × Length + 2 × Width =

Formula = 2 × (Length + Width) =

Formula = 2 × (L + W)
