## Rectangle perimeter

The perimeter of a rectangle is the sum of the length and width multiplied by “2”. where “a” is the length of the rectangle, “b” is the width of the rectangle. The sides of the rectangle, which lie opposite each other, we call the length and width. The formula for finding the perimeter of a rectangle is:

P = 2a + 2b

where P is the perimeter, a is the length of the rectangle, and b is the width of the rectangle.

## Using the Rectangle Perimeter Calculator

Our rectangle perimeter calculator makes it easy to find the perimeter of your rectangle. To use the calculator:

- Enter the length of the rectangle in the first box.
- Enter the width of the rectangle in the second box.
- The calculator will automatically calculate the perimeter of your rectangle.

Here's an example:

Example: Find the perimeter of a rectangle with a length of 10 units and a width of 5 units.

P = 2a + 2b

P = 2(10+5)

P = 2*15

P = 30

So the perimeter of the rectangle is 30 units.

## Rectangle Perimeter Examples

Here are some examples of finding the perimeter of a rectangle using the formula:

### Example 1

Find the perimeter of a rectangle with a length of 8 units and a width of 3 units.

P = 2l + 2w

P = 2(8) + 2(3)

P = 16 + 6

P = 22

### Example 2

Find the perimeter of a rectangle with a length of 12 units and a width of 6 units.

P = 2l + 2w

P = 2(12) + 2(6)

P = 24 + 12

P = 36
