**Essential Question**

How Do You Find Perimeter?

Visual Learning Bridge

Gus wants to put up a fence to make a dog park. He made two different designs. What is the perimeter of each dog park design? Which design should Gus use?

One Way

You can find the perimeter by counting unit segments.

The perimeter is 34 feet.

34 > 30. Gus could use this design.

Another Way

Add the lengths of the sides to find the perimeter.

3 + 9 + 7 + 3 + 6 = 28

The perimeter is 28 feet.

28 < 30. Gus could not use this design.

Visual Learning Bridge

In a video game, you have 16 castle tiles to make a rectangular castle, and 16 water tiles for a moat. How can you completely surround the castle with water?

Make rectangles that have an area of 16 square units. Find the perimeter of each rectangle.

Find the area:

A = 1 × 16

= 16 square units

Find the perimeter:

P = (2 × 16) + (2 × 1)

= 32 + 2

= 34 units

Find the area:

A = 2 × 8

= 16 square units

Find the perimeter:

P = (2 × 8) + (2 × 2)

= 16 + 4

= 20 units

Find the area:

A= 4 × 4

= 16 square units

Find the perimeter:

P = (2 × 4) + (2 × 4)

= 8 + 8 = 16 units

Only the 4 × 4 castle can be surrounded by 16 water tiles.
