Two dimensional objects are measured in terms of perimeter and areas. A perimeter of a two dimensional object is the distance around that object. If you want to find the perimeter of an object, all you need to do is add up each one of the lengths of sides of that object. If you have a small figure like triangle, first compute the length of the three sides. Now adding these three sides gives you the perimeter of the triangle. A larger or more complicated shape might have more number of sides. Even in such case first compute the lengths of all the sides and add them up to find the perimeter of that figure. In this way given any shape, you can find the perimeter of that shape.
