What's the number?

2. anonymous

They want me to find the perimeter but I am unsure of what their asking

3. anonymous

Is there a picture?

4. anonymous

I know that perimeter means to add all sides

5. anonymous

yes

6. anonymous

I cannot copy and paste although it is a pic of a rectangle

7. anonymous

What math are you in? If you don't mind me asking. This will make it easy for me to figure out your problem faster. Also, if there is a picture can you drag it to your desktop and click " Attach file " under the post box and let me see the problem.

It is geometry

9. anonymous

Oh.. I can try but I might not be much help. I'd try looking up Khan academy.com and looking up some video's on how to do it. They really do help, they are what helped me fight tooth and nail out of geometry.

ok. the lengths of opposite sides of a rectangle are the same. Add up all the sides to get the perimeter. Do you know how to add fractions? |dw:1435187050550:dw|
