This video starts out with a basic view of a rectangle and its dimensions. The base is 7 inches while the sides are 4 inches. It then displays the formula for finding the perimeter of the rectangle which is the addition of both bases and both sides. After the substitution of the values into the formula you can quickly come up with the perimeter. Then moving on the area, the formula is the base multiplied by the side. In this case, the base being 7 inches and the side being 4 inches you come out to an area of 28 squared inches. When dealing with area you will always be using squared values. This video shows you a quick example of finding the area and perimeter of a rectangle and should help you in the future with more complex equations.
