# Perimeter of a Parallelogram

Lesson Objective
In this lesson, we will see some examples on the perimeter of a parallelogram...
In this lesson, we will:
1. See an example on finding the perimeter of a parallelogram.
2. See another example on finding the side length of a parallelogram.
The study tips and math video below will explain more.

# Study Tips

Tip #1
A parallelogram has two pairs of parallel sides and its opposite sides are equal in length. These properties are shown on the right.

Now, if the parallelogram has sides of length a and b, the perimeter of the parallelogram, P, will be:

P = 2(a+b)

This formula is similar to the formula for the perimeter of a rectangle. Rather than repeating the same explanation, the math video below will show some examples on the perimeter of a parallelogram without using the formula.
