## Formula Definition

The perimeter of a trapezoid can be calculated using one of the following formula: if you know the length of each side.

If you know the length of one of the sides, you can calculate its perimeter using the following formula:

$$"perimeter" = a + b + c + d$$

$$a = "length of the "a" side"$$

$$b = "length of the "b" side"$$

$$c = "length of the "c" side"$$

$$d = "length of the "d" side"$$

It is a geometric figure with 4 sides, it has two parallel lines. All trapezoids have different angles.

A trapezoid can have vitually infinite posibles shapes, Despite this all have 4 sides and all this angles are different.

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".
