    To find the perimeter of each shape, add up the lengths of all the sides.


    To find the area of the rectangle, you will need to use Pythagoras to find the horizontal length. Then multiply the length by the width.


    To find the area of the triangle, multiply the base by the height, then divide by 2.

    look up the side ratios for a 30-60-90 triangle.
