Mensuration

Mensuration is the branch of Mathematics which deals with the study of geometric shapes, their area, volume and different parameters in geometric objects.

Mensuration

Rectangle

1. Area of rectangle = length(l) * Breath(b) = l x b

2. Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 * (Length(l) + Breath(b)) = 2(l + b)

Square

3. Area of a square = Length (l) * Length (l) = l x l

4. Perimeter of a square = 4 * Length (l) = 4 x l

Parallelogram

5. Area of a parallelogram = Length(l) * Height(h) = l x h

6. Perimeter of a parallelogram = 2 * (length(l) + Breadth(b)) = 2(l + b)

Triangle

7. Area of a triangle = (Base(b) * Height(b)) / 2 = ½ x b x h

Perimeter = (a + b + c)

Area of triangle = √{s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)} [Hero’s formula]

8. Area of triangle = ½ab∠C = ½bc∠A = ½ac∠B

9. Area of isosceles triangle = (b/4) * √(4a2-b2)
