    to find the perimeter of given shape, you need to find out sides first

    perimeter = sum of all sides

    yes, but for that u need to figure out coordinates of points and plug them in the formula... which is a pain... and u need to do it for 5 times... since u have 5 sides

    there is a simpler way to do this, which uses the distance formula in disguise...

    use pythagorean theorem : that red side = \(\sqrt{2^2+6^2} = \sqrt{40}\)

    this is exact same as distance formula, but this is felt simple because, you're not plugging in the coordinates... instead you're just counting the number of grids...
