*1. Perimeter of shapes*

Here is an Example of perimeter .

*Since*

*a square is even we have to figure out what u + u + u + u = 32. First think back to the 4 time tables.*

*8 x 4= 32 because there is four sides on the even square.*

*Here is an example of area.*

*For area you only have to multiply two sides. So we need to work out 22 x 22. Here is a picture . It was = 484. That is your answer.*

**Here is a second example of volume.**

We have to figure out q x q x q = 8. They have to be the same number. 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 . That is your answer.
