I would use Perimeter for the back of the yard because I want to see what is the Perimeter of my yard so we can put a fence around it so our ball won't fly all the way to our neighbors yard. I would use Area for the pool because my cousin wants a pool and see how can the pool fit in the back yard. As you can see, we use Perimeter an Area in different ways. I think, you can use Perimeter an Area for something different in any way.

I would use area in my backyard as well to put a huge pool in there because we have a garden and a basketball hoop and I need help using area so i don't put my pool on the garden or the basketball hoop.

if you would want to find something to get perimeter you would do like a house or a place you would want to put like a school because perimeter is the outside of something so if you want to build something and there like trees in that area you would have to cut down the tree if you would want to put a building so like you need a flat place to put your building down and you would need like builders and a place that is in no other peoples building spot that is what you would want to do for perimeter

Area is the measurement of the inside of a figure.For example if i wanted to put a garden in my yard you would need to measure the inside of the figure.Perimeter is the measurement of the outside of the figure.For example if i wanted to make a quilt i needed to measure the outside of the figure.

the term area means amount of space inside the boundary of a twodimensional shape. the term perimeter means distance around a two dimensional shape. i might need to find the area for my carpet in my bedroom. i might need to find the perimeter for my picture frame.

Area means the inside. Perimeter means the outside edge of an object. You would use perimeter when you put up a fence you would need to know where your neighbor's property starts. You would use area when you make a house, you need to know like where everything you would go so there would be space.

I use perimeter when I was putting up curtains in my bed room. I used area for when I was putting a rug in my bedroom. These help when your older like if you were going to put a new desk in your office it would help because you have to know the area and the perimeter of the space where you are going to put the desk. You will also need to know the area and perimeter for when you are putting in things like tables or desks things like that. These are very helpful tools for when your older or now like I needed area and perimeter when I was putting in a rug and when I was putting up curtains in my bedroom.

The terms of area and perimeter means that what you need to measure. heres an example area is what you measure in something and perimeter is something that you measure around something else. Those are the meaning of terms of area and perimeter.

The terms of area is the amount of space inside the boundary of a twodimensional shape.You would need to find area in a object when you're doing a rug.For example:you want to build a rug and you want 10 squares but you have 20 of them that you bought.So after your done doing a couple of squares count the area of the squares.That's when you will need to area.
