Perimeter = (2 x L) + (2 x W)

Do you have to measure every side to find the perimeter of these shapes?

## 2. A Hexagon has a perimeter of 300cm.How long is the length of one side?

3. A square field has a perimeter of 1200m.How long is the length of each side of the field?One side of the field is hedged. What length of fencing is needed to fence in the other three sides?
