The perimeter of a octagon can be calculated using the following formula: if you know the length of a side.
If you know the length of one of the sides of the octagon, you can calculate its perimeter using the following formula:
$$"perimeter" = S * 8$$
$$8 = "number of sides in a octagon"$$
$$S = "one side length"$$
It is a geometric figure with 8 sides, all the sides have equal length. Also a regular octagon has all the same angles. All regular octagon look the same.
An irregular octagon can have vitually infinite posibles shapes, Despite this all have 8 sides.
A perimeter is defined by the outer path of a shape. The shape is always in 2 dimensions. The perimeter is the total length of the exterior path. Another way of looking at this is to think of it as the boundary length of a shape.
In the case of a circle, the perimeter is called a circumference.
Perimeter has a Greek origin, "peri" means "around", and "meter" means "measure". So perimeter means "measure around".
It is a representation of a rule or a general principle using letters. (Algebra, A. Baldor)
When describing formulas in plural, it is also valid to say "formulae".
