Problem : Perimeter is a measurement in how many dimensions?One dimension
Problem : Why doesn't the shape of an object have an impact on its perimeter?Because perimeter is a measure of length only; it doesn't concern direction. It measures length regardless of which direction a segment or curve is pointing, thus, shape doesn't affect perimeter.
Problem : What is the perimeter of a parallelogram with adjacent sides each of measure 8 inches? What is another name for this parallelogram?32 inches. A rhombus.
Problem : If a regular polygon has an even integer for the lengths of its sides, is it possible to have an odd perimeter? Why or why not?No, it's not possible. The perimeter of a regular polygon is ns, where n is the number of sides and s is the side length. Here the side length is even, so no matter how many sides the regular polygon has, it must have an even perimeter.
Problem : Two pentagons each have a perimeter of 23. Are their sides congruent?Not necessarily. It's quite possible that the pentagons have all five sides of different length, and their sums are only equal by coincidence.
