The perimeter of a composite shape can be worked out by considering side lengths of the individual shapes that it is made up from. Use the side lengths of the individual squares and rectangles to find the side lengths of the composite shape. Then add up all sides to find the perimeter.

The perimeter is calculated by adding up all the lengths of sides of a shape.

The perimeter is the full distance measured around a 2D shape.
