Perimeter Worksheets

Welcome to the Math Salamanders Perimeter worksheets page.

Here you will find a range of free printable perimeter sheets, which will help your child to learn to work out the perimeters of a range of rectangles and rectilinear shapes.

Perimeter Worksheets

On this webpage you will find our range of worksheets to help your child learn to work out the perimeter of a range of rectangles.

These sheets are graded from easiest to hardest, and each sheet comes complete with answers.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • understand what perimeter is;
  • know how to find the perimeter (and area) of a rectangle;
  • know how to find the perimeter (and area) of rectilinear shapes;
  • know how to find the perimeters of regular shapes;
  • know how to work out the side length of a regular shape if we know the perimeter.

What is Perimeter?

  • Perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape.
  • It is measured as a length and can be in a range of units such as cm, inches, feet, miles, etc.

Perimeter of a Rectangle

  • The perimeter of a rectangle can be found by adding the length of the 2 sides together and doubling the answer.
  • Or Perimeter of a rectangle = (length + width) x 2
  • The perimeter of the rectangle below is (7 + 2) x 2 = 9 x 2 = 18cm

Perimeter of Regular Shapes

Finding the Perimeter of a Regular Shape

Because regular shapes have all sides of equal length, we can easily find the perimeter of a regular shape.

All we need to do is to multiply the number of sides by the length of one side to find the perimeter.

 

Finding the side length of a Regular Shape

If we know the perimeter of a regular shape, we can also easily find the side length.

All we need to do is to divide the perimeter by the number of sides to find the length of one side.
