9-1 Perimeter and Circumference
Perimeter is the distance around a
geometric figure. To find the perimeter P
of a polygon, you can add the lengths of
its sides.

9-1 Perimeter and Circumference
The distance around a circle is called circumference.
For every circle, the ratio of circumference C to
diameter d is the same. This ratio, C , is
d
represented by the Greek letter , called pi. Pi is
approximately equal to 3.14 or 22 . By solving the
7
C
equation =  for C, you get the formula for
d
circumference.
