Area The number of square units that are needed to cover the inside of a figure. The formula for finding area of a rectangle or square is: A = Length X Width or A = l x w
Perimeter The distance around the outside of a figure. The formula for finding area of a rectangle or square is: P = l + w + l + w or P = 2l + 2w
Formula A special type of equation that shows the relationship between different variables. Example: Formula for finding Area is A = l x w
Strip Diagram A diagram or drawing that shows the relationship between the different parts of a problem. An equation can be written using a variable to represent the unknown value that we need to solve the problem.
